The rather ancient artifacts on display were in great condition considering their age, but static displays of calligraphy, ceramics & housewares was not at all compelling. The garden out behind the museum is beautiful, however, and the gift shop was better than most considering its small size.

The museum is nice with a fairly small collection, but the lovely Japanese style garden is the main attraction here. The main building also offers seating and is a nice place for a little break, away from the brazing sun outside!

The tranquility begins as soon you approach the entrance which is flanked by a row of bamboo. In addition to a large, well curated gallery space the Museum also has an amazing Japanese garden in the rear. A really nice respite from the (wonderfu)l chaos and noise of the city

Try to visit this old Nezu museum and shrine. It's so beautiful especially if you want to relax for a while in the middle of the busy Tokyo.

The museum itself has a private collection of East Asian artwork scattered throughout the first and second stories. While extremely interesting, they seem to blend together for a general art admirer like myself. On the other hand, the garden out back is absolutely gorgeous - its easy to take a stroll and get lost in your own thoughts as you... More

Great end to a walk down trendy Omoto sando. Fine building, exhibits, beautiful gardens and cafe. It was crowded though due to a special exhibition of national treasures.
