ASAKURA Museum of Sculpture, Taito 台東区立朝倉彫塑館

7-18-10 Yanaka, Taito City, Tokyo

Visit the home of a leading sculptor, turned into a museum

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.
