    Located next to the Park Phoenix, this museum opened in 1998 was designed by Japanese architect Kenzo Tange.

    Items from japan, china and india, but also countries of Southeast Asia are exposed. Temporary exhibitions are organized.
    Activities such as tea ceremony, lectures are also available.

    Although quite small, this museum is nonetheless interesting and is easily explored.

    closed on Tuesday. free entry

    A round museum situated next to the Parc Phoenix and overlooking the same lake. Very Asian in design and holding a tea-ceremony room with sea-through walls; the impression you get is that of a very bare and white gallery - very minimalist.

    The collection is constituted from objects (statues, clothes, idols, furniture...) from Japan, China, India, Cambodia and others, and it's possible to follow a few themes, like Buddhism, ceremonies, the house,...

    The museum welcomes temporary exhibitions and holds some introduction workshops to the ceremonies around tea, ikebana, calligraphy.

    Free entrance - 10 euros if you want to attend workshops (with a visit)
    Open everyday 10-17, later in season
    Bus: 9, 10, 23. Stop: "Arenas"
