  • There was a decorations exhibit and it was excellent. The colors, the artists - I thoroughly enjoyed my visit here. I don’t have much to say about the gardens besides being nice, but the museum itself...  more »
  • You could capture the meaning of "decoration" on appeal in this exhibition point of view this was not a very fun time. He felt an even blend with himself in such a space, very classy and Japan Art Deco atmosphere, seemingly incongruous, such as a decorative piece naturally placed and sense.

  • Go on foot from Meguro station Meguro Street, but is surrounded by Metropolitan Park is spacious and has been isolated from the hustle and bustle. Garden is in good condition after renovation, soon had a really beautiful autumn leaves. Spot more is even better, I think, are so disgusting, such as, and. More exhibits also went through a period not old-fashioned building is interesting. Sunny Cafe with a friend is best to talk slowly with tea. The patio was packed! It is our favorite place.

  • 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.
  • The art pieces were great. Pictures allowed.
  • A little ģem in the heart of Tokyo.. visited it in 1985 and it still impresses me
  • 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.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
