SpotTokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum

Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum used to be a mansion of a member of the Imperial Family. Later, it served as the official residence of the Foreign Minister, or as a State guest-house, and finally was made open to the public as a branch of the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum in 1983. The main building was built in the utmost luxury of the Art Deco style, which was taking the European art world by storm at the time of construction (1933), and is designated as one of Tokyo's tangible cultural assets. The garden consists of three areas: a lawn plaza, a Japanese garden, and a western-style garden. Various flowers can be appreciated here in every season. A garden admission ticket is available for 200 yen.

* The museum is now closed for the reconstructon.
