Visited the special exhibition of Irises and Mountain Streams in Summer and Autumn. The screens are stunning, photos don't do them justice. There are also other Asian artefacts to admire. The gardens are beautiful and the cafe is worth a visit.

I was living right next to the Nezu Museum for two years but never made my way there because I thought it's just a Museum . Finally two years ago I went inside and couldn't believe the beauty of the garden and the silence behind these walls. Definitely a must go especially when feeling Tokyo is overwhelming. Kids are ok... More

This small museum, with only a few rooms of artwork inside and a lovely garden outside, is a perfect spot to enjoy art and some tranquility in the middle of Tokyo. I loved the serene feeling both inside and outside. And it is the perfect size - not too overwhelming and able to enjoy completely in around 75-90 minutes. I... More

Dominated by its special exhibitions - so check first - and seems to be closed in between. Beautifully designed buildings, with wonderful gardens. Slightly off the tourist trail, so a bit quieter than some other galleries. Saw a great Japanese screen exhibition. Garden cafe gets very busy.

This is a cozy museum 500 meters walking from the A5 exit of Omotesando Station. It is very well organized and user-friendly to foreign visitors. Nearly half its visitors are Westerners. It offers a permanent collection of exquisite Chinese Bronzes and Japanese lacquered picnic boxes. Until May, there is a special exhibition of marvelous Edo period screens and scrolls: Irises...

This Tokyo landmark is always a pleasure to go by. If not for the museum, one can always come here to enjoy a stroll in the beautiful garden followed by a relaxing tea in the cafe.

Lovely garden. The museum is small enough to see quickly, but we weren't very interested in the exhibition. It would be a must see museum if the exhibition was of interest to me - small and well laid out. The garden was a real highlight with stroll paths and ponds. Plus not very crowded.

Beautiful and well curated museum. I would recommend it to any visiting Tokyo. It's definitely not the biggest but the galleries, garden and cafe are a wonderful experience. On our visit to Tokyo we did visit several museums and galleries this was by far my favorite.

The Nezu, designed by Kengo Kuma, is a delightful building which houses a private collection of early and ancient Japanese and Chinese ceramics and screens. The gardens are lovely and the cafe offers a tranquil and delightful respite from the bustle of the surrounding city. Highly recommended! Also, they have an excellent gift shop :)

The setting and building of the Nezu Museum are as big a part of the attraction as the fascinating exhibits, often of things off the beaten path. The museum has beautiful gardens and is a great place to relax and enjoy an afternoon in the Omotesando/Aoyama area.
