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

If you've got/get gallery fatigue, it's hard to imagine a better place to come than this. Absolutely stunning art deco building with wonderful details throughout - the building alone is worth coming for. The there's a small but well-choses collection and an interesting guest exhibition. Excellent place.

The garden is closed until 2015. There is no photography on weekends (but allowed on weekdays--a rule I don't understand). Rooms are very sparsely decorated with minimal art deco items throughout. Pretty but dull.

National art centre in Minato, Tokyo.Great building with good sized galleries. There are several spacious galleries, there is a decent cafe and a good museum shop downstairs, with some seats.It worths a visit.

Go early or near closing to miss the crowds. The gift shop has a nice selection of items, and street entertainment in the area is fun.

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.
