Excellent little museum unfortunately like in most museums in Tokyo with limited space for presenting their permanent collection. Behind the museum is a beautiful garden in traditional Japanese style with three tea houses. Regular tea ceremonies for which you have to buy tickets at the counter of the museum.

An absolutely spectacular museum - the architecture is outstanding and breath-taking. The outside mixes modern elements with natural stones and bamboo. The dining room is nearly surrounded by glass and the beautiful, colorful fall leaves outdoors enhanced the excellent food and dining experience. The museum itself is gorgeous inside and each viewing area is easy on the eye - with... More

When we went in September and unfortunately the flowers didn't seem to be in season. The garden is nice but given the flowers hadn't bloomed, most of the plants seemed quite similar. Nice to do, but not a necessity. We only went through half the museum but what we did go through was interesting. There are tonnes of shops along... More

Modern but Japanese set in exquisite gardens that the previously owner is buried in. Very good collection of Asian sacred art. Do try the well priced cafe set in the gardens with translucent alabaster ceilings.

Beautiful architecture with wonderful vistas into one of the best gardens we have seen. The exhibits are superbly lit and presented. The museum is not too large so you don't suffer from fatigue or overload. The current special exhibition is amazing. The paintings of Maruyama Okyo are astounding. This exhibition finishes Dec 18 2016. His work is so modern and... More

Small and intimate. Well curated. The star here, however, is the garden which is more like a small park. Go early in the day before crowds arrive and you can linger and take in the sights. It's a wonderful respite from the rest of Tokyo. Far better than the larger public parks. The Nezu is at the end of a... More

Beautiful museum with huge park. The little cafe inside the museum is an added attraction. Once can enjoy art, history, nature and coffee/tea in one place. Simply love it.

Beautiful small museum displaying the creme de la creme of Japanese traditional arts and crafts. Museum includes a gorgeous oasis of a garden in the midst of the bustling city. Highly recommended. Doesn't take long to go through and not a single wasted moment. Excellent respite from urban overload. Nice shop, too.

Japanese garden with cafe is a "Hide away" space in the middle of Tokyo to rest and renew our soul with a cup of green tea.

The park is magical, like an oasis of calm and serenity in the bustling Aoyama district. The collections are gorgious, as well as the architecture and the general layout. Definitly a must-see in Tokyo !
