A short walk from Meguro station the former home of Prince Asaka and family is frozen in the 1920's. This is the best example of an Art Deco house that I have seen and is now listed as an important cultural property. Where restoration work has been required great sensitivity has been used to ensure it is in keeping with... More

This former royal residence is now a petit but powerful museum surrounded by a park where you can relax while sitting on the green. The building itself is a fine Art Deco art piece. We went at the beginning of September 2015, and by then there were constructions happening around the fish pond and access was restricted. The small Cafe... More

This is a perfectly restored Art Deco residence that was the property of a Prince in the Imperial family and built for him in 1933. I have visited before the restoration and you did spend time trying to look past or around the mediocre art exhibits to look at the lovely building. Now the building has been rightly shifted into...

Visit the former residence of Prince Asaka, which has been build completely in the style of Art Deco. It will be hard to find a second place in the world, that is 100% original and let´s you see and experience the atmosphere of Art Deco with all senses. I also recommend to visit the museum shop and the small cafe... More

A fantastic art gallery hidden in a large garden off a major road. The exhibitions vary throughout the year but are accompanied by worthy catalogues usually written in Japanese and English.

The park is surrounded by a garden and sculptures, adorned with art deco buildings. The park is managed by the government, and you can see a variety of collections that they have shown, in addition there is also a restaurant for the visitors.

Apart from viewing any art exhibitions there (good 'mask' exhibition when I visited), the building and gardens are well worth the visit. Staff will give you an excellent audio guide to use round the house. unfortunately photography is not allowed.

This is a small museum situated in a quiet area. Has its own outdoor garden and pond. Can be reached by foot, a nice walk or by rail for example Yamanote line. Several good hotels nearby

Teien Art Museum is situated in a lovely park not far from Meguro Station on the Yamanote Line. Although the park is not fully open it is still a lovely park to visit and the Museum is worth a visit just for the quality and authenticity of the Art deco architecture and finish. It should be as it was owned... More

I found this a very interesting experience, viewing what was a prince's palace and gardens built in 1930's. Certainly well worth the modest Y1200 entry fee. Good signage guides you through the building and most rooms and a large majority of the art and artifacts have Japanese and English descriptions. There was an audio service also available. No photos are... More

Staying in Shinagawa / Gotanda

Neighborhood Profile
Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with luxury residential buildings and the scene is constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama park and Togoshi park are great places to see beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa and Ebara are very popular. It's a great place to get in touch with the old Edo atmosphere on a pleasure boat cruising along the canal. The neighboring area around Gotanda station is a study in modern contrasts filled with unique restaurants and a lively nightlife.
