  • There is not near from the train station and the lost points, but neighbors are accustomed, you can kindly tell me. Rich tea. I think West Hankyu Department store and Kobayashi is East, Tokyu, goto. Fuller's study collection. Spectacular and. Better go check on tea party enthusiasts. Beautiful landscape garden, seen from the garden, located on a hill, so time has a spare.

  • GoTo Keita, Kojiro Tsutsumi of the Seibu railway, as well as excellent businessman as well as overseas, known as a collector of works of art. Treasure of Genji Monogatari emaki is a must.

  • It truly surprisingly great collection of Chinese art treasures, with some important pieces of Japanese and Korean origin. rather small with only two galleries, but extremely well presented. Unfortunately there is practically no explanation in any foreign language, and the guards object to any oral explanation inside the galleries as well as using Google translate to get at least a hint of what one is seeing ("use of cellphones and photographic equipment prohibited", for crying or loud!) There is also a truly notable Japanese garden to be visited.
  • If there was more English explanations, it would be better
  • Tokyu Corporation of GoTo, weight it's is a museum based on the collection. In the front across the ring 8 from kaminoge station, steep turn to the right, right.  It is about 5 minutes by foot. Many masterpieces of calligraphy and Scriptures, antiques, high level of exhibition are held. I think whose design, which is the main building designed by Yoshida 58, well matched with the collection.  In the 1960's, goto says died in the previous year. Wide garden is on a slope going to the TAMA River (Kokubunji Cliff line), are dotted with statues, but died during the railway construction throughout is a thing. Inari Maru Tomb in the garden.  Vantage point from the TAMA River from the cliff-top plateau is great, but preventing skyscrapers on the other side of Mount Fuji. To commemorate it, is restructuring isolation after World War II and been listed on the nameplate at the entrance of the Museum and Dai-Tokyu-Kinen Bunko, name 1-effusively so look has Keio, Odakyu, Keio suddenly each railway was originally Tokyu Corporation, was founded in " Dai-Tokyu "of the library of classics, was established in the capital of each company's. GoTo Keita still and it's precious documents collected on the basis. Researchers conducts reading and research on the subject.

  • It is a Museum of the "tea ceremony". Actually a Museum of Oriental art exhibit, may archive (in the copybook) to scroll around, Cha thought unable to. And two exhibition rooms, any many of the exhibits. If only the room not more than 30 minutes if 10 minutes, Knightsbridge. A vast garden. This garden has good condition while not located in the cliff. Cliff, so if travelling at less than 1/3, 回remasenn, the landscape is amazing. However, Rakuten headquarters feel scared that such care. Are organized according to the various tea ceremony experience level. I hope you once experience is what?

  • The courtyard is very big, the exhibition is mostly porcelain. Asia, Japan, China, Korea, Korea, like porcelain can go. The hall can not be photographed, the yard. Separate tour of the courtyard 300 yen, the Pavilion ➕ Courtyard 1000 yen. There is a very fine teahouse in the courtyard and you need to make an appointment. The courtyard is full of statues (mostly Guanyin) and a variety of trees, because it is winter now, only some Camellia opened, wisteria and some name trees are not flowering. The service staff is very attentive and intimate, and there are souvenirs for sale.
