The Tokyo National Museum houses a wonderful collection of historic artifacts and cultural treasures, including pieces from as far back as the Jomon period.
Inside was a really neat tactile map of the museum for the visually impaired.
There is also a lovely contemporary building here, the Gallery of Horyuji Treasures by Yoshio Taniguchi and Associates.
Inside, this dimly lit gallery displays small statues of Kannon. Each has its own individual display case and highlighted by a spotlight.
Throughout this part of the museum, the primary source of light came primarily from the displays.
