I will be taking a weeks vacation there and was wondering if any Typophiles had some pointers?
A few suggestions:
Typographic Posters of the 20th centuryhttp://www.teien-art-museum.ne.jp/exhibition/typograph/index.html
Great exhibition! The venue is neat too, the museum is located in the former mansion of a Japanese prince. Nice garden for strolling around after the exhibit.
The Printing Museum near Iidabashi station is interesting and they offer printing workshops:http://www.printing-museum.org/en/index.html
The GGG gallery run by Dai-Nippon Printing in Ginza has good exhibits:http://www.dnp.co.jp/gallery/ggg_e/index.html
You can find lots of art listings here:http://www.tokyoartbeat.com/
You can see some pretty interesting takes on typography if you hang around Akihabara.
thanks! Great stuff
If you want to make the "trek" down to Yokohama, the Newspark Museum is there. It is dedicated to the growth of the Japanese newspaper industry from 1880 and probably has a great number of interesting artefacts. Haven't been there myself yet, but am planning to visit soon.
I will check the Museum out- looks interesting!

Are you in Korea or Japan? Are you safe? I hope you are safe.
BTW, Zapf exhibition was postponed probably because of electricity shortage and in case of aftershocks. Besides train services have been in confusion due to planned outages.
OK, I received his reply. He postponed his visit and is in Korea.
