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.

Dedicated to Asian art, shows several pieces of Bronze from ancient China. Until May 17th was presenting: the Secret of Korin's Design. Most of the pieces of art have english explanations. The garden alone worth the visit. There are stone Buddhas everywhere and the pond with lilys is inspiring.

Beautiful garden with lots of stone paths (not always handicap accessible though). While there are a few teahouses sprinkled in the garden (along with a lot of cute stone and bronze sculptures), they aren't open to the public. The artwork is also nice, though the European decorative works in the hallway seem a bit out of place.

Nezu left his gorgeous gardened estate to the public after his death in 1940. He collected Chinese bronzes, Japanese screens, lacquers and pottery ware. His home was spared the1945 bombings and newly rebuilt in 2006. The gardens must be seen, especially in the spring. I have attached photos of the Iris pond. I visited during the Korin special exhibit. Korin's... More

The museum itself is not that big: just five small galleries filled with Japanese art. The garden is beautiful and the main attraction of the museum. It is good but not unmissable.

The exhibition has some really beautiful pieces and the gardens are filled with statues and rock carvings. The museum has a handful of rooms, I really enjoyed everything though did find the calligraphy difficult to understand as I don't read the script. There are some english captions but they are not as extensive as the Japanese captions - but don't... More

Mostly featuring special exhibits on an aspect of Japanese arts & culture, the Nezu is a great way to get an in-depth look at one area – avoiding the overload that can come from larger museums. I saw the “Secret of Korin’s Design” exhibit and was very impressed with the high quality of pieces displayed, the excellent presentation and the... More
