  • Small garden and Museum was and is competing with Mitsui Memorial Museum deals Museum No1 in the path. Here is the building itself. Tired of looking at times. Also close to the Matsuoka Museum of art and Sakura no Sato Museum of art, as a walking course comparable to the Ueno area.

  • Prince Asaka had built this residence in 1933 by Henri Rapin and René Lalique services. Is an Art Deco building, it is hardly flamboyant outside but inside is gorgeous, entry hall plunges us into the atmosphere, the living room is sumptuous, the stairs dazzles us. This House is a marvel. The gardens and also very beautiful. In the modern annex, point out the path, hold temporary exhibitions. For lovers of art deco, for architecture lovers and the curious.

  • 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
  • You can pay just 100¥ to enter just the garden which has a wide grass area that is perfect for a picnic on a sunny weekend afternoon.
