Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum, located in Minato City, is renowned for its Art Deco architectural style. The structure was originally built in 1933 as a home for Prince Asaka, who, after spending time abroad in France and the United States, requested that it be designed in the popular 1930’s style. Famous French artist Henri Rapin designed the mansion’s interior, and glass designer and jeweler René Lalique created the decorative glasswork in the front entrance hall, as well as the chandeliers.
