Under the auspices of the Bunka Fashion College, this tiny, specialized museum has collected some 20,000 historical costumes and related crafts from around Japan and around the world, and holds four exhibitions a year organized around specific themes. The collection includes folk costumes, accessories and textiles from Europe, Africa and Asia, and Noh costumes and modern court costumes from Japan.
The exhibition space is relatively small, but it's worth stopping by if you're interested in fashion history and you're in the neighborhood. Check the website for exhibition dates, as they're closed for several weeks between shows.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
