Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum
The Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum is an art museum in Tokyo, Japan.
The Art Deco building, completed in 1933, has interiors designed by Henri Rapin and features decorative glass work by René Lalique.
The building was previously the residence of Prince Asaka Yasuhiko (1933–47) and his family.
The prince, having studied in France and travelled to the United States in 1925, was greatly in love of the Art Deco movement and on his return to Japan commissioned the construction of his own private residence in this style.
