Ota Memorial Museum of Art, Harajuku

Concierge.com's insider take:
This tatami-floored museum (you must wear slippers inside) has one of Japan's best collections of ukiyo-e woodblock prints and offers a respite from the crowds of Harajuku. Founder Seizo Ota collected thousands of works, and all the best-known artists, including Hokusai and Hiroshige, are represented. Leave your shoes in a locker by the entrance and enjoy the peace and quiet. There's an interesting shop in the basement that sells hand-printed Japanese cloths called tenugui.
