At a corner of the Museum’s 1st-floor galleries there is a casual style tea room where you can take a break from viewing the artworks to enjoy a set of green tea and seasonal Japanese sweets. The room has tables and chairs, so anyone can enjoy delicious tea without having to sit on one’s heels like in a formal tea ceremony.
