    Getting the picture in Tokyo

    A great rainy day site in Tokyo that isn't crowded with hordes of tourists is the Museum of Photography, conveniently located near the Sapporo Beer Museum in Yebisu Gardens. I really enjoyed the exhibits, which rotate periodically. The highlight while I was there was an exhibit of the top press photos of 2005, which included some moving shots of Hurrican Katrina and the war in Iraq, as well as more light-hearted photos from around the world. This was followed by an exhibit of press photos from the advent of photography, many with a Japanese focus. The final exhibit was 30 years worht of photographs and videos of French actress Elizabeth Huppert, the most immediately arresting of which were done by the renowned Robert Doisineau. But no matter whatexhibits are showing, I'm sure you'll enjoy the visit.
