Advertising Museum Tokyo

The Advertising Museum Tokyo (広告とマーケティングの資料館「アド・ミュージアム東京」) is a surprisingly interesting (and free!) museum, showcasing Japanese advertising over the centuries. From Kimono ladies selling beer to retro packaging, the museum is a fascinating change from the usual museums in Tokyo.
