Art, design, history, and flea markets here at Toshima’s museum of stamps

The Philatelic Museum is a museum dedicated to the cultural, historical, and artistic impact of stamps. The first-floor exhibition room is the heart of the museum, and home to theme-based exhibits that cover the cultural, historic, and artistic importance of stamps. These diverse exhibits change every three months. On the second floor, you'll find a specialist philatelic library.

If you're visiting on the weekend, you may be able to catch a postage stamp exhibition or one of the museum's regular flea market style events. On the 23rd of each month, the museum offers free admission in celebration of an unofficial holiday called "Letter-Writing Day."
