Free places to visit in Tokyo !

If you want to visit Tokyo without spending a dime, here are some suggestions :
My favorite : Museum of Parasitology !

Meguro Museum of Parasitology

It is the only museum in the world devoted to parasites, the MPM presents specimens, photos and studies devoted to the subject. You will also find a small shop at the second floor where you can buy souvenirs of Parasites ! The museum isn't that big, but is impressive nonetheless ! Marvel at the sight of fleas, infected organs and a stunning 9 meters long tapeworm ! Amazing !
