The Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, in Tokyo's Ueno Park, is now exhibiting many pieces from Turin, Italy, called "Ancient Egypt in Torino."
The Museum is a ten-minute walk from Ueno Station and opens at 9 am.
The exhibit lasts until October 4th, and is very popular.
One the day I went, a large tour group from the provinces was swarming around every piece of jewelry, stone, or mummy. At times, it was three-deep.
Still, it is a wonderful - and wonderfully arranged - exhibit.
Go early and enjoy it.
