Tokyo National Museum

Tokyo National Museum is the one museum that you should never miss if you decide to visit just one museum in Tokyo. There are five main galleries inside the museum compound, namely: Honkan, Toyokan, Heiseikan, The Gallery of Horyuji Treasures, and Hyokeikan. I visited four of the galleries as Heiseikan was holding a special exhibition which was too crowded for me to gain access.




The Gallery of Horyuji Treasures is more contemporary in term of architecture. It also houses many statues of Buddha which are the national treasures of Japan.






The side entrance of the museum which is not accessible to the public has something very interesting.




What does it resemble?




They are in fact just the door knobs! Gotcha!




I'll be updating on the treasures found in this museum, so please stay tuned.
