The English language handout you will receive upon paying the admission fee explains that the museum houses "some 7000 works of antique Asian ceramics". At any given time there are barely over one hundred on exhibit so it would take many, many visits to hope...More

I was fortunate enough to go on a guided tour of Toguri Museum. While the pieces are beautifully presented and there are descriptions in English, the tour really pulled the exhibition together and made the pieces shine for me. We went from the earliest efforts...More

The Toguri Museum of Art is set in quiet residential streets about 10-15 minutes walk from Shibuya. It's not too difficult to find and there are some signs on some lampposts as you get nearer if you can spot them. The museum itself is well...More

Visited this place to view on their special exhibition for antique Kutani wares. Yes, I saw many of great wares but somehow I was not excited viewing them, which is very unusual as a fan for such things. I eventually left the museum after unusually...More

We found it was a tad pricey for such a small museum but it did have a very interesting selection of ceramics. The museum itself was very well maintained. It was lovely to have a seated reception with a beautiful view of a traditional Japanese...More

Nearby
Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
