The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum occupies Prince Asaka’s former residence, an Art Deco building with surrounding gardens constructed in 1933. Designed by key figures of the movement like Henri Rapin and demonstrating the highest level of Japanese craftsmanship, the museum hosts a selection of artworks in rooms that are themselves works of art. The exhibition program brings historical and contemporary artists, architects, and designers into conversation with these surroundings. Visitors can also explore the gardens, which have remained unchanged since their completion.

The museum was established in 1983 and added an annex in 2014 designed in collaboration with Hiroshi Sugimoto. The residence was designated an Important Cultural Property by the Japanese Government the following year.

Dining options on-site.
