     In 1933 completed Art Deco residential buildings have Museum intact. Japanese people's basic design is engaged architects of France's Henri Lapin and glass artist Rene Lalique, etc.. Which buildings will remain pretty much the same, so hard to see as the Museum of fine arts. Exhibition to be held there are suitable for the building. Restoration work is done a few years ago was beautiful, but now again elevator in mid-11 / closed for that. If you go to the exhibition, both the building and the garden look you want. Matsuoka Museum on the other side, and want you to visit nature education garden next to the Museum of science, is also great.

    The building of this museum renovated from the old Japanese royal family's house. It was designed at Art Deco, and its entrance had doors which designed by a famous French glass artist "René Lalique"....  more »

    Not a priority for a short stay in Tokyo maybe, but definitely worth a visit. The building's art nouveau architecture and furniture are fantastic. Sadly I couldn't stroll in the garden. The downloadable audio guide is pretty well done and has different languages. Even if the special exhibition isn't attractive to you, you still might want to discover the building.

    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!

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.
