Visitors with an interest in Japanese industrial design can trace the evolution of mobile-phone fashions through the years at this mini-museum devoted to the history and culture of mobile communication. Exhibits span the decades from massive shoulder-mounted models (introduced in 1988), getting smaller and smaller though the years up until the smart-phone era, after which they reverse course and get larger and larger.
Although it may not merit a special trip on its own for anyone but mobile-phone fanatics, this is one of several museums and other attractions in the Ryogoku area, and admission is free.
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.
