  • 国立近代美術館の別館である工芸館は、かつては大日本帝国陸軍の近衛師団司令部庁舎だった。明治時代に建造された赤レンガを基調とした建物は、それだけでも見るに価値がある。 展示されている工芸品は、『近代美術館』の銘の元、ほとんどが明治以降に活躍した工芸家たちの作品が並ぶ。しかしそれぞれの作風は、新しさの中に江戸以前の工芸の伝統が脈々と受け継がれているため、決して奇を衒ったものばかりではない。工芸の基礎を...  more »
  • Can be seen in the Museum of modern art and the set, but was surprised in the style of the building itself. As imperial guards Division was apparently, exhibits more eyes going to configuration of the building.

  • Well worth the visit as the exhibits are always changing and will displayed. We spent two hours here and enjoyed the exhibits and ambience of this historic building. Yes this location is up the road from the main buildings of the Museum of Modern Art but the gem is worth visiting. Also when you visit please go behind the building as there is a short but pleasant path through the woods that is away from the sounds of the roadway that fronts the building. So do go there and enjoy. Also if you are looking to eat, do this at the Museum of Modern Art where vendors sell it from their vehicle as there is no food available at the arts and craft building.
  • Very whimsical exhibition. I enjoyed the interaction between people and objects and that I got to create my own art to take home. I came at 4pm on a Saturday (1 hour before closing) and it was the perfect time to enjoy the space at my leisure and without a lot of other people. Highly recommended for the dreamer.
  • Can't really say anything. Gallery is closed from 9.5. till 17.6.
  • Whether the access is inconvenient, such has been the unexpectedly interesting exhibition off the beaten path.
  • Arts and Crafts Museum is in an annex of the Museum of modern art was once a guard division headquarters Bureau of the Imperial Japanese army. Buildings built in the Meiji era red brick show in itself is worth. Artefacts on display is active since the Meiji era inscription of "modern art" from the little works of art lovers. But only one for each style, newness in tradition of Edo earlier and has been passed down, never attempt to. You can enjoy the changing times on the style while not firmly down the basics of the craft, filled with modern humor and sense. Except the shooting's exhibits, require prior permission. The building was originally the headquarter building of the Imperial Japanese Army. Because it has been over 100 years since the building, it has been designated as an important cultural property. Crafts exhibited are mainly made by craftsmen who have been active since the Meiji era. The style of each work has not only a modern sense of humor but also a tradition before the Edo period. You may be able to feel the transition of the modern era from the works. You are allowed to take photos the works except for some of the works. Before taking photos, you need to obtain permission at receptin.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
