MYONICHIKAN BY FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT

Did you know there is Frank Lloyd Wright architecture in Tokyo? There is, in Ikebukuro. Myonichikan building is a part of Jiyu Gakuen (School of the free spirit) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1921 and is now registered as an Important Cultural Property in Japan. The building is now used to host open lectures, there is a dining hall as well, and each room can be rented for gatherings, classes, seminars, concerts, parties, etc. Guided tour is also available on certain days.

The building is so beautiful and all the little details inside are remarkable! It was really lovely to be inside. I wish I had taken more photos to show you... It is definitely worth a visit if you like architecture or admire beautifully crafted work :) It's about 15 minute walk from Ikebukuro station, not that far away.

The last photo is of a publishing company's building (Fujin no Tomo Sha - Household's friend Company) that is related to Jiyu Gakuen only a block from the Myonichikan, designed by Raku Endo. Windows of this building were also lovely!

Best to check if it's available for inside tour in advance. Usually you can only see from outside on weekends. See the calendar here (Japanese) -->
