Main Hall of Yasukuni-jinja Shrine
Yasukuni-jinja Shrine is the most controversial shrine in Japan. It’s a hotbed of nationalism, but most days, you won’t notice anything particular. The adjoining Yushukan Museum is highly recommended for those interested in WWII history.
Institute for Nature Study
You’d hardly think this is Tokyo, but it is. The Institute for Nature Study, located in Meguro, is one of the best places in Tokyo to escape the crowds and concrete of the city.
National Art Center
The National Art Center in Roppongi holds some of the most interesting art shows in Tokyo. Check our Tokyo Events pages for upcoming shows.
