A wonderful Museum of Japanese culture. You can know "Objects" and "Soul" of JAPAN at here. We have a lot of exhibit about archaeology of ancient Japan and SHINTO culture also. There are two SHINTO shrine near this museum. The greatest objectives for our Museum are to attract large number of people so that they may deepen their understanding of Japanese culture.

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.
