Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum
An exquisite Art Deco museum nestled in a tranquil and spacious garden
Visitors can enjoy the tranquil museum garden flourishing with seasonal flowers, and admire the Art Deco architecture that was wildly popular in Europe in the early 20th century, which houses a variety of fascinating exhibitions. The museum building was constructed as the residence of Prince Asaka in 1933, and is recognized worldwide as a valuable piece of cultural heritage, conveying the Art Deco style to the present generation. The museum’s main interior was created by French designer Henri Rapin, while Ren Lalique assisted the interior design. The basic design was overseen by architects from the Imperial Household Ministry, resulting in an architectural fusion of Japanese and Western cultures with a distinctive Japanese sensitivity to the French Art Deco style. The museum’s exhibitions, which are held approximately four times a year, showcase paintings, craftwork, and jewelry in a unique exhibition area.
