Tokyo Favs: Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum

Adjacent to the Nature Reserve of the Institute for Nature Study is the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum. The gorgeous art deco building, once the residence of Prince Asaka and his wife Princess Nobuko (a daughter of the Emperor Meiji) was built in the 1930s by famous foreign and Japanese craftsmen, most notably René Lalique, one of France’s leading glassmakers.

The building is surrounded by landscaped grounds and a Japanese- as well as a Western-style garden.

I’m a big lover of museum shops and the one at Teien Art Museum does not disappoint. It’s small, but sells a well curated selection high quality items.

The beautifully appointed modern onsite restaurant (can be entered without a museum ticket) serves modern French inspired cuisine: Restaurant Du Parc

Sunday Stroll: Institute for Nature Study – Nature Reserve, Tokyo Japan

The Nature Reserve of the Institute for Nature Study is a beautifully green and quiet haven in heart of Tokyo. The area covers around 20 hectares and contains ponds, forests, rivers and wetlands which are home to all sorts of plants, birds and insects.

I love popping in there for some peaceful nature walks and to get away from the city’s hustle & bustle. It never gets very busy as only a maximum of 300 people are permitted at any one time.
