Brussels – The Museum of Japanese Art
A new addition to the city opens this week on the 22nd March – The Museum of Japanese Art, showcasing pieces from 1600-1868 (Edo period).  The idea for this museum was inspired by the tastes of King Leopold II, ruler of Belgium from 1865-1909.  His love for the Orient is reflected in both Japanese Tower and the Chinese Pavilion in Brussels, which were constructed during his reign.  The museum is located between these two exotically designed buildings.
Location: Avenue Van Praet 44, 1020 Brussels.
Tel: +32 (0)2-268-1608.
Open: Tues-Fri 9.30-5pm; Sat & Sun 10am-5pm.
