  • Garden and Museum are typical of art deco architecture in Japan as Prince Asaka residence built in 0/1933. Moreover, it of course depending on the planning exhibition being held at the Museum because I'm around every room thinking, old but well worth it, and. Just don't look at paintings, wall and floor tiles, ceiling lights, railings and look at personal bliss. Art Deco architecture is stored properly, that is publicly available, as all over the world (including the Paris! ) But not quite.

  • 2017 / 4 / 9 till the cloisonné exhibition. Surprised at the fine and precise craft. Just glasses required. Now, plum blossoms are in full bloom in the garden. About the plum is a plum one. After seeing the exhibition, exploring quiet gardens.

  • Guests can come to see exhibitions change on a regular basis, so that every time. Convenient, on-site shops. Nice variety and time will tell and the hearing room was packed with attractions, close to the curator.

  • 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
