Advertising Museum Tokyo information
This collection is run by Dentsu, Japan’s largest advertising agency. It covers everything from woodblock-printed handbills from the Edo period to sumptuous art nouveau and art deco Meiji- and Taisho-era works to the best of today. English signage is minimal, but the strong graphics of many of the ads stand alone. If you see advertising as art, it’s a spectacle, and there are video consoles to watch award-winning TV commercials from around the world.
