Tokyo has a score of interesting museums and exhibits hidden in parks or gardens. This city-run museum offers a green oasis in a commercial/residential area of Meguro, with the added benefit of a collection of art deco/Lalique objets adjacent.

The former residence of Prince Aska. Beautiful art deco architecture and interior decorations. Gardens are nice for a stroll. Museum cafe is recommended too. Check the exhibit schedule before going.

I wouldn't really describe this place as a art museum - the real attraction is the building itself. It's a beautiful example of art deco architecture and if you have any interest in architecture or Art Deco, you have to visit. The gallery space is...More
