  • From Ikebukuro station West exit, Metropolitan exit, lumine building there, so best go go. Metropolitan Hotel, is put in front of Yamato Road. And friends of the woman, is back in a residential area. In the courtyard are lawns and lovely buildings. Only the views of outside admission is required, but it is good. It is popular in shops. During the cultural centre is also held.

  • A very good expression of FLW's clever use of lighting and space in a very practical application. And… Yoko Ono attended the school! 
  • Buildings appear suddenly in a quiet residential complex, large lawn garden and an important cultural asset. First buy a ticket at the entrance of the site. Only admission ticket and the ticket of admission + tea set. That can be and are wondering whether to admission after tea set in addition to ask, so first of all, only entry was. We visited the staff and people building. Would never get bored since, but even just looking at the structure, the building itself is very valuable in the area of furniture and furnishings are simple and lovely. I learned impressed me dusty atmosphere common facilities is not used daily, are being groomed, the later being used in weddings and events. Exhibition for architects and history of the free Academy building, including Frank Floyd Wright, the atomosphere. Looks like self service quick resting place when I was in the part of the hotel's spacious tea and sweets to able were. I believe candy was a simple pound cake or cookies. Homemade cookies made in a craft shop and on-site staff, made writers of jiyu Gakuen school graduates and school had been sold. This cookie is as popular with the year-end holidays and not especially booked this time of year and getting that was.

  • Went to a friend's wedding here. Former school designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, now converted into a rather attractive wedding venue, which, considering all the faux Western style chapels which seem so popular in Japan, is probably one of the classiest places to get married in Tokyo.
  • Nice place
  • 自由学园的旧校舍。喜欢旧建筑的一定要来看一看。
  • Free school located a few from the West exit of Ikebukuro, Frank Lloyd Wright's former school. Has become an important cultural property. Sometimes done, is a very beautiful night excursion is also nice.

  • Designed by building big bird has spread his wings to favor large lawn, has been jumping up Frank Lloyd Wright 1867-1959 is. Jiyu Gakuen girls ' school was established in 1921, new education Hani Yoshikazu and Motoko and his wife simply cramming of knowledge, not homely, relaxed is. West classroom building with a central tower was completed in 1921, Wright's sketches to detailed design based on Arata Endo Auditorium was completed on the southwest side in 1925, East school building across the street in 1927. Tomorrow Museum Auditorium is currently seismic construction, 2017-12-scheduled for completion. Light is called "Prairie style" theme "Prairie houses" in the United States, has left many works of ground-hugging appearance. Ailack Hotel Hall with large Windows in a typical example, tomorrow, the symbol of the Museum as a central symmetrical building is at first glance reminiscent of byodoin Phoenix Hall. Said claimed that in his original draft, and had interest in the Japan architectural lights were affected-hououdou-Hall in question denies it. From the passage of the same level as the ground to get into the building without stairs, no difference in the nature enters the building. Take soft light without the use of anything more expensive and luxurious materials, such as marble, mosaic tiles, stained glass, and ordinary wood light tastes Oya used floors, columns, fireplaces, comes out. Should provide for building tomorrow's appeal there are many, first of all is the still large hall of the building's Windows. Hall has a large window filled with South and ohya-stone fireplace located on the north side, is a room used as a chapel founded at that time. You can relax, for tea and cake sitting on a chair designed to feel a light rhythm tomorrow on Museum admission: 600 Yen with coffee observation fee interested lines perpendicular tracery window frames and diagonal weaves, while light. This is a extremely luxury of enjoying the silhouette window sill if sunny is projected on the floor of this Hall is a love cherry blossoms in early spring stretch to fill large window, even at night on tour, a month space. Look closer to the window and used wood, metal, never instead of more expensive or custom-made products, that it contains extremely commonplace. Luxurious marble fireplaces and not appreciate the rustic, ohya-stone has been used. It is also a place designed for light within a limited budget to realize affluent spaces that appear everywhere. Look toward the Western Wall while sipping tea and there on the entire wall of the old testament "out Egypt record" of section 1 are drawn. This wall is a fresco painting is not by a famous painter's 10th anniversary to commemorate the beginning of the Showa era, drawn by a student at the time, was sleeping beneath the plaster for a long time, but discovered during restoration work and revived by the hands of the students to the current figure of said. This monumental work initially drew students alike, "dug out" students, even highly desire is not what it seems
