  • Fascinated by Yasuyuki namikawa cloisonne works on occasion, visited Kyoto namikawa Yasuyuki cloisonne Museum 8/2016 this 1/14-know the 4/9 of his works are on display here, I visited. Exhibit piece counts, total 140 points, in; cloisonne piece is 93 points [in; Yasuyuki namikawa's works by 86 points, mainly namikawa Yasuyuki National Museum of art, Shimizu Yasuyuki namikawa cloisonne Museum visitors three years collecting items such as Hill Museum, Victoria and Albert Museum (London, United Kingdom) is the narrow exhibition space as you know because only a fraction of the collection gallery in my garden and Museum exhibits exhibits 37 points, etc. Good opportunities can be many watching it 1度ni namikawa Yasuyuki works so namikawa Yasuyuki fans to visit is recommended. In annex along with Yasuyuki namikawa's works [video explaining the differences in the production process of modern cloisonne and namikawa Yasuyuki] is recommended to be viewed also has been aired since. (Visit 1/31) were a plum tree in front of the tea house [Guanghua], 12/5 and restart publication of Japan Garden because Japan garden look if time permits.

  • Great art-deco design with an expansive park surrounding it. The exhibitions are laid out across its multiple floors so you get almost two exhibitions for the price of one.
  • Its an excellently detailed art-deco building - everything from the woodwork to the grates to the ceiling tiles to the tapestry to the ... well, you get the picture. You can easily spend the best part of a couple of hours just noodling around the place!
  • A hidden oasis in the middle of Tokyo. Pay 100JPY for access to a private/clean park.
  • 10 Guards for every 1 visitor. Felt like couldn't relax. Inconsistent and confusing application of what you can/can't photograph. People clearly go to see the building first and exhibit second but guards and building management don't seem to understand that. Unfortunate managment of what could be an awesome museum space
  • Amazing Art Nouveau mansion
