The Japanese Tower is home to the refined art objects that were made in the Land of the Rising Sun for export to the West. The items in the showcases of the Chinese Pavilion represent an extensive survey of the Chinese export porcelain to the West. The Museum of Japanese Art houses the rich collection of Japanese art.

Staff will not provide the audioguide that is included with the price of admission without holding your passport as collateral. Ticket office staff need to upgrade their customer relations skills.
