Originally was a small improvement over and over again in 1935 (Showa 10), designed and exerted one's igenuity, completed in most of the current buildings, temporary is that I could probably around tall buildings had so far views, Mt. Fuji.  Ceiling height of 8.5 m from three sides incorporating natural light Studio part touching many sculpture works.  Go followed by watching Japan garden courtyard mansion part used in the living room and teahouse, officials of morning, between the Sun at 廻remasu.  Atelier rooftop gardens and as valuable examples of green roofs in reinforced concrete buildings of the early Showa era.  Here, you can see valuable buildings as well as sculptural works and blending architectural elements West of the beginning of the Showa era of Japan, combined.  So as the sculptural works beginning channels as well as building a valuable, so visit the will. Location of the JR Nippori Station, West walked in five minutes, this neighborhood is suffering after World War II, and there are many temples, Yanaka cemetery and Yanaka Ginza shopping street of the old leave see what is.

  • Asakura Fumio display small sculpture works of art. Artist's lifetime home and Atelier of the former building preserved intact into galleries. The classic small patio garden with a very pretty, Japanese rooftop garden overlooking the town sweeping up to the horizons. Japan called the godfather of premature subtotal Fumio Asakura's works are very beautiful, especially when you look at a lot of the cat as a cat that liked a lot of the pieces are on display in La the viscosity interesting point.

  • 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.
