The current exhibition on Qing Dynasty glass was impressive. The Qing glass items were combined with works from French artist Galle. The Qing influence on Galle was intriguing. Go see these rare and beautiful pieces. Some are loaned from places as far away as the...More

A nice sized museum located inside Tokyo Midtown Galleria. It was small enough to keep my boyfriends attention for 30 minutes or so. The scrolls were beautiful and there were some English translation. They had a great little gift shop too!

This museum seems to cover whatever it dsiplays in great detail so it's easy to immerse yourself in a subject you either know well, or not at all. Beautifully presented and laid out in a spacious series of galleries. More 'Japanese' in style than some...More

Situated in what most of us woulld call an upper-class shopping mall, it is a relaxing exhibition space. We saw Kozan's ceramics, some of which were dreadful (to suit 'Western taste' of his time) and some beautifully simple other, later artworks. What you will see...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
galleries.
