At the top end of the 'Spaniada', Corfu Town's central park area, stands the Palace of St Michael and St George. This is the most significant building from the period of English rule and was originally built as the luxury residence of the then British Lord High Commissioner. It's now home to the Corfu Museum of Asian Art - the only one of its kind in Greece, dedicated to the arts of Asia.

A great deal of care and attention has been paid to the layout of their Museum, especially the Japanese sections on the first and second floors. The staffing are friendly and welcoming, and the rooms are well organised, with Greek and English
