9-7-4 Akasaka, Tokyo Midtown Gardenside, Tokyo, 107-8643, Japan

Housed in a modern Japanese building designed by architect Kengo Kuma, the Suntory Musuem of Art is a striking white structure with vertical louvers that run the length of the exterior. The design sets the scene for a high-concept museum that displays "art in life" including ceramics, laquerware, textiles, and glass from ancient to modern times. The museum includes a tea ceremony room that lets visitors experience this Japanese tradition the second Thursday of each month. There's also a cafe and gift store that sells functional art.
