This was perhaps my favorite place in Tokyo. It's a gem of a museum, and the garden is a fantastic oasis in the bustling city. The museum is relatively small, but it has great treasures--the ancient Chinese bronzes are spectacular. When I was there in June 2016 there was a large exhibition of old mirror backs, which did not enthrall... More

The garden is definitely the best part of this museum. It's not huge, but it's cozy and wasn't too crowded when we were there. Lots to enjoy as you meander along the paths - tea houses, flowers, bridges, ponds, sculptures. The museum is a nice building, and some of the exhibits were interesting, but it's quite small, and I wish... More

A beautiful old garden well maintained. Elegant tea house with light meals and lively views. The museum is small and mostly had Chinese art and artifacts which was nice but not Japanese. A bit of a walk from nearest station.

This is an interesting place. While it has great artifacts and paintings in the museum building, what attracted me was the beautiful landscape of the garden adjacent to the museum. Historically, this was a residence that has been converted into a museum. Even if you are not interested in the art pieces, you must not miss the beautiful garden there.

Overwhelmingly beautiful on all fronts- the museum itself is spectacular but the real treasure is the garden. With meandering paths and ponds, you begin to forget where and when you are. The fragrant flowers and gurgling streams complete the transcending experience. I suggest arriving at 10:00 when the museum opens and walking the garden before the exhibits. This allows you... More

I found this museum very interesting. You can see there not only many nice statues and graphic art but also its garden is very pleasant.

I went to this museum following the path of Tadao Ando´s Architecture in Japan. When I entered this place I realized that it was more than a beautiful building. The collection inside as well as the zen garden that is outside is amazing. I highly recommend this Museum because it is also very near from the chaotic Omote Sando and... More

Great garden, really great. And great art. Do not miss this museum in Tokyo. It's worth a couple of hours, and is in a great location, so you will get a taste of haute Tokyo shopping, even if only window shopping. I loved everything about this.

You can get a free stroll outside the museum, however you have to pay approximately 1000yen to get into the museum.
