Thus museum is close to the Royal Domain.
Of these, the Japanese Tower and the Chinese Pavilion are two eclectic buildings dating from the early part of the twentieth century and which respectively contain collections of Japanese art and Chinese export porcelain from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Nearby is the Museum of Japanese Art, where alternating displays demonstrate the profusion of the collection.
The small, sober building behind the Chinese Pavilion is now the Museum of Japanese Art. In 1990, the Royal Museums of Art and History and the Public Buildings Department decided to renovate it and to lay it out as a museum to exhibit the institution’s rich collection of Japanese art.
