The quickest way to the Printing Museum is to get to Korakuen Station on the Marunouchi or Namboku Line, then head west a few blocks. There is another portal to Korakuen Station a bit further to the east around 35°42’30.21″ N 139°45’14.27″ E. This portal also services Kasuga Station on the Toei Mita and Odeo Lines. But it’s a bit more of a walk (but still under a mile).
Kasuga Station portal at night.
If you’re up for more of a walk, you can also get there from Suidobashi Station further to the south if you take a JR line.
You can also follow Rt. 434 west, and then head north where it crosses Rt. 8. The museum is just to the north on Rt. 8.
The museum has an incredible display of the history of printing in Japan, all kinds of books and parchments, and other exhibits. The displays are top-notch and the entire place has an air of excellence about it.
It’s a must-see when you’re in Tokyo.
