The Nezu museum was very famous for its Japanese garden. However, the exhibition itself was not as remarkable. As of the garden, I recommend that you plan 1-2 hour(s) for it, if you love Japanses gardens. It is absolutely quite, despite the fact that it is located in one of the busiest areas in Tokyo, Omotesando. You can see skyscrapers... More

Here you are a video I made of the Garden https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=411jpe3deaY&list=UUAxMEpfzdJ2dkrplSWehgcA The Nezu Museum was first a private property owned by Nezu Kaichiro (1860-1940) president of the Tobu Railway in Japan and became later the museum that you will visit. This museum houses a huge collection of Chinese bronze pieces and other artifacts, paintings and calligraphy (7,400 objects). But by... More

Located in posh Aoyama amid fancy premium brand stores (Prada, Cartier, etc.), Nezu Museum is small but the building is gorgeous (Kengo Kuma is the architect), and has a spectacular garden. I believe it is built on the site of the Nezu family mansion.

Step away into another world to this quiet museum away from the noise of Tokyo. The exhibits change and it is worth looking online for what you are interested in, but it is a beautifully designed building with varied interesting exhibits - from pottery to screens, kimonos to sculptures. The gift shop was the best we saw during our week... More

this is a real gem. we have been living on tokyo for 2 years now and this place is one of the cutest we have seen so far. tiny park but well worth the visit. will be back in summer. there is a nice cafe with a view to the garden pond. food didn't seem expensive either.

Nice museum with a huge and beautiful garden. Great for a break from the cityscape. The exhibition inside was ok, not great.

An ideal museum for an autumn a’noon. A small exhibition (nice for a change), in a beautiful designed museum. The cafe is a wonderful construction with views into the beautiful Japanese garden. Nice menu. All very refined, stylish and relaxing.
