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.
