Hida Takayama Museum of Art : Michelin's recommendations
Created by the collector Tetsuya Mukai, Hida Takayama Museum of Art boasts a fine collection of European Art Nouveau glassware, furniture and objects. The displays showcase delicate vases and paste jewellery by Tiffany, Lalique, Daum and Gallé. Several rooms are devoted to the great masters of European decorative art in the Belle Époque, such as Louis Majorelle, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and the Vienna Secessionists. The highlight of the collection has to be one of Lalique's monumental glass fountains (1932), which once adorned the Rond-point des Champs-Élysées in Paris.
