Printing Museum, Tokyo 印刷博物館

B1F Toppan Koishikawa Building, 1-3-3 Suido, Bunkyo-ku, Tokyo

Learn about the world of printing through virtual reality, art displays, and traditional style workshops

A 10 minute walk from Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens you'll find the Printing Museum, a hands-on museum dedicated to the evolution and history of printing. Step inside a virtual reality theater, and browse the printing workshop and two gallery spaces—one temporary, one permanent —covering all facets of the printing industry.

Run by the nation's biggest printing companies, Toppan Printing, the museum's aim is to get you acquainted with the art of printing. The best way to do that is to sign up for a printing workshop. The workshops run for about 30 minutes and are limited to six participants, so it's recommended you sign up ahead of time to avoid disappointment.
