One of my personal favorite museums and experiences in Tokyo. A fine, small, manageable spot. The main feature to me is the excellent garden, which is set up in such a way to make it feel much bigger than it is, and much more remote than it is ( in the center of the city!). You'll feel as if you... More

If you like gardens, architecture and art, this is the place. The rain adds more color variety to the plants, rocks and sculptures. Makes the moss stand out. The art collection is small but interesting. The well cared-for garden is the highlight.

Perfect for an hour or two with a leisurely walk through the garden. The cafe was a nice surprise with piano music, dessert, afternoon tea and beautiful view.

Being a bit of a history buff, I decided to pay a visit to the Nezu Museum in Tokyo to broaden my knowledge on Japanese art and history. It was literally a trip centuries to the past. The garden that filled the vicinity was very stunning that you seem to forget that you are in busy bustling Tokyo. It is... More

Excellent visit. The statues and garden combine together to make for a superb experience. This takes you back a few centuries. Definitely recommended

The museum has various art exhibitions but I liked its garden even more. It's an oasis in the middle of a busy Tokyo area so if you're into Japanese art/sculpture or gardens, the museum will not disappoint you.

Visited the Nezu Museum on a business/pleasure trip to Tokyo in October. Its an amazing building, recently renovated I think with an lovely peaceful garden - welcome rest bite from the frenetic city. A great exhibition and permanent collection - really inspiring and well worth a visit.

The Nezu Museum and its gardens offer a two fold experience. Architect-of-the-moment Kuma Kengo's somewhat flat, yellow bamboo-dotted, straight-lined architecture is like all his other buildings, but it does house some genuine wonders, although shown around the year bit by bit. The gardens are conventionally inviting and can offer a tranquil, green getaway from the empassioned, frantic fashionability simmering everywhere... More
