Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography

The museum was built around 1995. It is located in Ebisu Garden Place, a chic and very popular new development near the JR Ebisu Station.

The museum exhibits everything from fine art photographs to popular culture, and draws a very diverse crowd. Young and old of both sexes seem to be equally represented.
