Originally built in the Art Deco style in 1933 to be the residence of Prince Asaka, this museum is also known for its tranquil garden of lush greenery. Inside, Japanese design fuses with the creations of French artists — such as glasswork by René Lalique and wall paintings by Henri Rapin — to magnificent effect. The gallery was reopened in 2014 and Hiroshi Sugimoto, a contemporary artist, was appointed as advisor for the new White Cube gallery space in the annex building. The museum is the embodiment of harmony between architecture, old and new, and a mix of international cultures.
