If you are staying in Westin Tokyo, I'd recommend to walk to this quiet and interesting museum. After here, walking along the canal in Meguro is also interesting

There are occasionally 'off the wall' expositions here. Visit the museum, the Nature Park next door, and sip a beverage in the museum garden.

This was very interesting, a great Art Deco building converted into an art museum and featuring an exhibition of carved wooden stools from Brazil. If you visit, make sure you look up in each room for a stunning exhibition of differing light fittings.

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
