3階展示室 ©木奥恵三


Located in Tokyo Midtown, this museum contains exhibits based on the theme of ‘Lifestyle Art’. It possesses the biggest collection of Japanese arts and crafts in Japan, and also stages tea ceremonies in the tea ceremony room on the sixth floor every second Thursday. Space is limited to 50 people, and the ceremony offers tea and seasonal sweets for ¥1,000, in addition to the regular entrance fee to the museum. Since the tearoom is not normally opent to the public, catching the tea ceremony is a perfect way to initiate one’s self into the world of Japanese traditional arts. The gift shop features tableware, glasses, and cups with Edo Kiriko patterns.
