Tokyo, and Japan for that matter, is home to museums showcasing a range of art and temporary exhibits. From the Mori Art Museum to the Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum to the Tokyo National Museum — there is a lot to choose from.

But sometimes you want something extra unique. You could check out the Amuse Museum in Asakusa, but even the “harmony, ethos, and beauty of technology” isn’t quite what you’re looking for.

Well, JapanTravel has a few museum picks I think you’ll find interesting. These are stunningly unique structures with fantastic architecture.

#3 on their list, the Kadokawa Culture Museum in Saitama (just a bit north of Tokyo) is one I think you should pay extra attention to. It was designed by Kengo Kuma and associates, who also designed Tokyo’s Nezu Museum.

5 Uniquely Designed Museums in Japan “This stunning architectural piece is a real newbie, and only soft-opened in August of this year. It was designed by Kengo Kuma and associates, who also designed Tokyo’s Nezu Museum and a host of other impressive works. The venue is billed as a complex that combines libraries, art galleries, and museums – a one-stop cultural shop!” (JapanTravel)
