  • This museum is also known as the "Asakura museum of sculpture". It is the residence, the workshop and the seat of the school of art of Asakura Fusio, a dead sculptor in 1964. He created him even his house plans. It is a magical place, take the time to visit this place. It's a Japanese home but not only, there is a reading room, books are still on the shelves, a solarium, you can admire sculptures of the master of the House. To indulge in meditation before the inner garden, which is a pure splendor, a lovely! The roof terrace garden is also sumptuous, we admire the city, we look at the plants and flowers. This is a place to discover absolutely

  • 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!!
  • That's great! Close to the cafe's aim is just in もったいない is there, but did not know until now as it was. Sculpture and building great, garden is really lovely! Like the location and atmosphere of the garden spot of Kyoto and Kamakura. Just picture person, entrance and roof-top non-prohibited note. Probably was taken in without someone in charge who warns from was a mystery, but surveillance cameras? Enjoy the atmosphere. People who tend to squat in a unisex toilet is because it is the hotel's food and beverage ban, Western-style right in (though unisex there too), and I ~.

  • Fumio Asakura sculpture Atelier and residence buildings. When the 0/1907 was small, but repeatedly rebuilding. Consists of timber and concrete, is very good in the central courtyard. On the roof garden, as at that time in building a modern sensibility of the Asakura clan of suggesting from the building.
