Visit this museum recently. It is one of dozens in Tokyo. It was totally beyond my expectation. It will be one of my most favorite places in Tokyo. The courtyard, in the center of Shibuya, is just amazing. You can find surprises also in every corner. The building itself is totally modern, however blends so well with the classical garden....

Most well-maintained museum building I've seen, very modern but the art is not mostly statues, traditional paintings, antique pottery, clothing & calligraphy. The whole garden is beautiful to walk through, not a plant, pot or statue feels out of place and almost any part of the garden would make a good photo

What a treat. This museum was quite unexpectedly amazing. A well curated series of art and artefacts, relating to the year of the monkey, and the plum, bamboo and pine. Some were Chinese, others Japanese. Screens, kimonos, bronze artefacts dating back to the 11th century BC. The outstanding surprise was the garden. I won't spoil it for you, just to... More

Really nice architecture & exhibition. Perfect for architecture lovers as it combines opposite materials like bamboo and concrete. Enjoyed the garden on a sunny day.

We visited the Nezu Museum on a hot day in early September. We took a long subway ride to get near the museum them walked with the aid of Google maps; it was easy to find but the sign outside of the museum is not so easy to spot. The museum is part museum and part beautiful garden. The collection... More

The real gem in the Nezu Museum's collection is actually its gardens. They provide a peaceful getaway right in the heart of one of Tokyo's busiest districts. The fine art on display is also of very high quality with exhibits rotating about once every three months or so. An ideal place to step back and contemplate.

I am surprise that many trip guides missed out this Museum. The museum is "small", in terms of the exhibition area, one have to admit it. However, the architecture and the garden is just wonderful. Different from the others art museum in the area, Nezu in particularly focused on traditional Japanese which makes it worth visiting during travel .

The garden itself was worth the price of admission. Great collection of Japanese and Chinese objects. The architecture of the building itself was also impressive.

A wonderful museum with exhibitions that change every two to three months. We saw beautiful 17th century scrolls and folding screens that illustrate the tales of Genji and other famous monogatari from even earlier periods. There is also a fine display of Chinese bronzes. The main tea-house has good coffee, tea and snacks. There is also an extensive garden which... More
