Tokyo National Museum

I've been living near Tokyo for a while now, but for some reason I had never visited the Tokyo National Museum in Ueno. But I'm glad that I did it a couple of weeks ago.

The museum contains a great collection of historical objects including katanas (Japanese swords), ceramics, and paintings (I love the ukiyo-e collection, specially those paintings where yamauba and Kintarō appear). The entrance fee is quite reasonable if you skip the temporary exhibition.
