  • Excellent English introductory tour provided in this home and studio of famous Japanese Sculptor. Roof Garden. 
  • When we visited this museum it was more or less by chance. Most of the guide books do not really cover the importance and charisma of the Yanaka area which still expires the old Edo. And in the middle...  more »
  • The museum was not hard to find, near the Niishi-Nippori station and actually within walking distance of Ueno Zoo. Interesting area with many attractions which the Heath Ginza called the. It's a little ' old ' Tokyo, also in terms of buildings and atmosphere. Cats were or are still loved and that is to note, also has dedicated several works to Asakura, both large and miniature. The museum is ' spot on ', without excess. To the construction and equipment of the museum now-at the time as a workplace and residence-is very much time (and effort) spent to get it exactly as if the designer had in mind. It's all much smaller and less exuberant than, for example, the Rodin museum in Paris. Although, it is still typically Japanese, if you like Tokyo, simple in design in a small space.

  • Two for the price of one. The artworks (traditional, "academic" sculpture) are displayed in the traditional japanese house customized by the artist. Both are very interesting! No shoes allowed.
  • Photos were prohibited during the time we visited so I didn't take any, but we loved this place. It's more than just beautiful sculptures on display, it's the entire home of the artist in a very traditional style. The grounds are beautiful and there's more to see than you can guess from just looking at the facade. The staff spoke English, and were extremely helpful and polite, going out of their way to give suggestions about things to see in the Yanesen area and other parts of Tokyo. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit here, time well spent and for a great value in this often overpriced city.
  • Superb!!
  • In the precinct, could build building classical, emotional and beautiful Japan gardens, and steep stairs with parents, found by chance in Yanaka, blooming roof garden, my mother's favorite purple agapanthus flowers was healed. It was the oasis in the city, don't forget to stay in Tokyo. Of course, exhibits and impressive and wonderful.
