  • The history of this building is like and has visited many times. Enjoy over while imagining that people lived here, all rooms are retro in a modern design. Delight in the different every time you go everytime is the scant knowledge about the art exhibition.

  • Appearance is modest, but inside is a different world. For example, Western-style home built by businessman who made a fortune during the Meiji period, a daunting race is obviously worth it, and it's different. I think this place deserves quality exhibition is not easy and is a great planning skills. Museum of fine arts is a valuable cultural heritage protected by meticulous maintenance system, soft high-quality carpet over most of the floor. Seen your garden ago you shoes dropped completely and entering is minimum manners. Help room video learn the historical building in the back of the first floor is being constantly and learn more.

  • Beautiful museum showing art deco design. There's also a beautiful garden and a cafe inside. Used to be a house of a Japanese prince.
  • A little ģem in the heart of Tokyo.. visited it in 1985 and it still impresses me
  • The art pieces were great. Pictures allowed.
  • Beautiful museum with huge natural areas and parks located in very posh area!
  • 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.
