  • I came to Japan garden entering today in the Museum of fine arts, is here to see.  Only Japan gardens, adult fare is 100 yen is senior I was ¥ 50 for half the price. Sightseeing in Tokyo senior price so be nice. Art Deco style was built in 1933 (0/1933) former Prince Asaka residence is. Building that commissioned the design of France Henry Laban, now it is designated nationally. Minister of the army, and is fascinated by France when the art deco building. This building located behind the main building is known as "White Gallery" in the new wing was built in the year 2014. Go to the purpose of the visit of the Museum right next to today's "Japan Garden". I'm actually had closed down the garden, works for a long time,. Construction finished in 12 / 5 is always opening became. "Tokyo gardens" of garden consists in the lawn and garden where Western Japan garden, West garden construction for closed currently. Small garden is very emotional. It was more beautiful if you come as long as 1 week early, you!  It was like Teahouse and pond are located and it says Japan garden, promenade, built around your garden.

  • Japan garden tea room was off-limits in maintenance until now (not in the room), pond, and bridge has been published. Still leaves fit just in time. Yasuhiko Asaka Princely House, King's art deco heyday when the France International. Ask Henri to design and built his home is a valuable historical buildings that hold the State of the Showa era at the initial time, designated nationally. There used to be is now is the Museum of fine arts, Yoshida Foreign Minister, Prime Minister's residence, official, Guo Zhan [pt] receptions, the Akasaka guest house opened up. At an exhibition at the Museum planned for the atmosphere of a building important to feel with works harmoniously. I have no interest in the exhibition of the Museum of fine arts also immerse themselves in the art deco-style beauty value in new works of art appeal notice, and think. But I want to enjoy your garden, there can only garden entrance at 100 yen unless you have interested in exhibitions and building the Nezu Art Museum in Nice.

  • 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
