This was very interesting, a great Art Deco building converted into an art museum and featuring an exhibition of carved wooden stools from Brazil. If you visit, make sure you look up in each room for a stunning exhibition of differing light fittings.

Tokyo has a score of interesting museums and exhibits hidden in parks or gardens. This city-run museum offers a green oasis in a commercial/residential area of Meguro, with the added benefit of a collection of art deco/Lalique objets adjacent.

Shinagawa / Gotanda
In Shinagawa, an office district shares space with
luxury residential buildings and the scene is
constantly changing with rapid development. Ikedayama
park and Togoshi park are great places to see
beautiful traditional Japanese gardens with ponds, as
well as enjoy the changing seasons. Shinagawa was a
post and a port town during the Edo era and the lavish
old Shinto shrines and Buddhist temples at Shinagawa
