Asakura Museum of SculptureAsakura Museum of Sculpture is located in the Yanaka district in Taito ward in Tokyo. This museum used to be a renowned sculptor named Fumio Asakura(1883-1964)'s residence, private school and studio. Besides an exhibition of his excellent masterpieces, it is worth seeing the house and courtyard garden in the museum. It is really cozy and beautiful, in harmony with the taraditional Japanse style and western one. One of his works is put up in the campus of Waseda University.
