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.

For a first time Japan traveler, I was pleasantly surprised by how amazing the garden of this museum is. Through the designed path , you will be embraced by the Zen atmosphere and beautiful artifacts around you. You will feel the beauty of nature even you are standing in the one of the busiest city in the world. Aside from... More

A great place to visit. The garden is an excellent example of the Japanese style in a small space. The museum had a fascinating exhibition of early sculpture and bronzes. The early painted scrolls were delightful. Well worth a visit.

I enjoyed this museum especially the grounds. It is a small private that is tucked away on a small out of way street. The exhibits are alright. What I really liked were the grounds. It was a peaceful walk through the grounds. Up and down stone stairs through some old gardens. I would recommend this museum.

The best garden I've ever seen. It was not only carefully cared but also very unique in its own way, especially on Autumn, when you can see the leaves turn yellow. The museum was great too, but the best place imo was the tea ceremony places.

The Nezu museum is a wonderful place to escape the bustle of central Tokyo. The museum features rotating exhibits of the Nezu collection, most of which are exceptional. The real draw for me however is the garden at the museum. This is a masterpiece in its own right... a fabulous place to sit and have a cup of tea in... More

This museum located in quiet place, in Western Tokyo, few blocks from Harajuku. I went there to see its garden and I must admit, this is one of the most beautiful garden in Tokyo. It is small, yet it has so many unique characteristics. Tea ceremony places, pond, bridge, hill structure, not mentioned beautiful trees and flowers inside it. I... More

If you find yourself in Tokyo and want a real treat go to the Nezu Museum. The museum is ok, but what is really cool is the garden. You will feel as if you are in a completely different world. And no matter what you do for the rest of the day, you will feel tranquil and relaxed. Check it... More

Though this was a smaller museum, the exhibits were laid out beautifully. I was able to see the pottery exhibit through the ages as well as hand painted scrolls. These were both amazing exhibits, however unfortunately there were no photos allowed in the exhibits! There were also some beautiful Buddha statues in the main hall. I had lunch at the... More

Stunning garden in the heart of Tokyo. Great for a photographer. The museum has new shows all of the time. A great way to spend a few hours while in Tokyo.
