In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
The Asakura Museum of Sculpture was once Fumio Asakura's studio and residence. As a leading sculptor through the Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-26), and Showa (1926-89) eras, Asakura (1883-1964) worked on many bronzes, collected countless paintings and pottery, and built an extensive library and beautiful gardens at his residence. Not surprisingly, the building and grounds are now a national cultural property.
Note: Visitors to the museum must remove their shoes. Please wear socks.
General admission: 500 yen
