We came yesterday as a family of four. We were all very disappointed after paying a price of JPY1900 per person. We were at the museum for about 75 mins. We were assigned a male tour guide whose level of English was very poor and...More
Although our English speaking guide was somewhat difficult for me to understand due to the size of the group, and her accent (probably my issue as others seemed to understand), the tour was informative. I was not expecting to see so many reproductions, however, but...More
A very interesting small museum. Good, English speaking guide. At the end of the visit one can dress up for a photo session as a samurai. Nice little gift shop. Not accessible for wheelchairs, since there is no elevator to the second floor. Very much...More
I went on an English speaking tour. It was good, detailed information on their dress and their history, but I was really hoping for information about the samurai mentality/culture, and that was missing.

Shinjuku is the commuting capital of Tokyo, and contains the busiest train station in the world. To the west, there's an office district with the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Office at its center. To the east, there’s a district with long-established department stores, cinemas and theaters. Shinjuku Gyoen is a park originally built as the garden for the Imperial Household. It is quite famous as a venue for
cherry-blossom viewing in March and April. In Shinjuku, many restaurants operate all night, and districts such as Omoide Yokocho (Memory Lane) or Shinjuku Golden Machi have back streets filled with tiny restaurants and bars that reflect each owner’s unique taste and style.

No reservations are needed. I don’t think they take reservations. I do recommend taking a guided tour which I believe is part of the entrance fee. The web site also gives you approximatley 4 time slots where you are able to see a sword fighting exhibition.
