Get lost in Art Deco at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teian Art Museum’s Exotic Modern exhibition. The exhibition explores the influence of “exotic” cultures on art and fashion in early 20th century France, and features clothing, sculpture, painting, jewelry, posters, and more.

The museum is set in a large garden and admission includes access. The museum is covered under the Grutto Pass.
