All reviews beautiful garden japanese garden on display japanese art kengo kuma an oasis century bc private residence tea ceremonies tea house special exhibition national treasure small collection interesting exhibits edo period worth a visit modern building
We love art galleries but were disappointed in this one. The architecture is striking but the collection on display when we visited was minimal and esoteric, mainly ancient metal artefacts. But the garden is beautiful and you forget you are in a bustling crowded city.
housed in a museum designed by Kengo Kuma they have a beautiful collection of mainly japanese art - the collection does change regularly so it is worth coming back - the highlight however are the garden and grounds lots of little pathways make you discover...More
My favorite spot in Tokyo is this small, exquisite museum a short walk from the Metro pass fancy boutiques (check out the Prada facade!)
The gardens were gorgeous with fall leaves, a pond, bridges, a torii, sculpture, woods. It was not too crowded so you...More
Through work I met a Tokyo tourist guide who privately recommended this museum to me. She was correct, I am so happy that I visited the Nezu. This is not a museum filled to the brim of endless treasure, there is not really that much...More
Beautiful buidling architecture, combination of wood, steel, raw material. Interior lighting and interior space is very intriquing, but could not take any photo. Nice and huge garden, small cafe in the garden has very good lansscape scenery. We visit during fall, can see red leaves,...More
The Nezu is worth a visit for the building, the contents and the garden. The architecture is beautiful. The treasures inside are glorious and the garden large and beautiful. Allow two to three hours so that you are in a calm and unhurried space. Very...More
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants, bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art galleries.

When I went, I believe the special exhibition price was separate. I remember skipping the exhibition because we really wanted to see the garden the exhibition at the time we were not interested in. I’m pretty sure but. This is several months ago. Make sure to walk around the area afterwards some nice shops even if it’s just window shopping.

Is your Kyoto hotel near Kyoto Station or Nishiki? If you are near Kyoto Station, Toji Temple is close by a stop away to the west of the Kyoto Station and/or you can take the subway to Nijo Station. Lots of eating choices around Kyoto Station. If Nishiki, then Gion is very nearby and a portion of the Higashiyama area (which is absent --on purppose? -- from your druther list). Plenty of places to eat in Gion, Pontocho, Kawaramachi, Sanjo. Wednesday: is it only Arashiyama area sites or are...More
Yoyogi -Meiji Shrine- Saturday vs Sunday- any difference? (6 Replies)
Just finishing my itinerary (3rd revision). Noticed a favorite mochi spot is closed Sunday in Harajuku so was considering switching days from Sunday to Saturday to visit Nezu Museum, Meiji Shrine, Yoyogi park. Any huge difference between both days?

Another way of asking same question - Ometesando area- are many shops closed Sundays?
Kabukiza Theatre (1 Replies)
Hi, Read that this was designed by the same architect as Nezu museum. Does anyone know if a tour of the building is possible, or do you have to buy tickets for a performance?
