The Art museum which has permanent exhibits of the tools of the Owari Tokugawa feudal lords, such as Japanese swords and armour, tea ceremony utensils, and Noh costumes. Be sure not to miss the limited-time displays of the Tale of Genji picture scrolls (designated a National Treasure), and the China dolls and Doll Festival. Entry to the museum is 1.400 Yen. To get there take the sightseeing tour bus or the closest metro station is Morishita Station. (Meitetsu-Seto Line)
Was given an impromptu personal 2 hour tour of the whole building. Amazing experience would recommend if you want to learn about how the Samurai and the Royal family lived. Goes into great depth on things like how they drank tea and what kinds of tea and things like incense and how it contributed to the tale of genji. Super cool.
