Find some peace in the midst of central Tokyo or impress someone you like with a scroll in this hidden gen. The museum is usually not really worth your attention, but the gardens are magical especially if you're caught by surprise by a sudden reain....More

The Nezu Museum is an oasis in Aoyama, with a beautiful museum building, a large and lovely garden to wander around and an excellent cafe in a glass box at the top of the garden with great views over the greenery

The Nezu is a great museum and a stunning garden. I happily spent 1.5 hours walking around the exhibits and then into the garden. Pictures don't do justice to the garden. I would advise going early to avoid the crowds and enjoy the zen of...More

Akasaka / Roppongi
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
