  • Little known to tourists the hidden Pearl in the same Museum. The old aristocracy is converted to housing, beautiful gardens and Japan with modern decorations and special exhibits related to the transition mainly. At the time of the Meiji era cloisonne ornaments and visit related exhibition was to open, very quiet and beautiful works of art for a leisurely outings.

  • 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
