Visit Nezu Museum for a meticulous, captivating lesson in how Japanese art and culture have evolved throughout history.

Inspect the vast collection of Edo-period folding screens, paintings of renown, calligraphy, sculptures, Chinese bronzes, and archaeological materials. Should you tire from walking, rest outside in the serene traditional garden. Using our custom trip planner, Tokyo attractions like Nezu Museum can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • This place is really a must for visitors to Tokyo. The museum itself is ok, its very small can be seen in 30 mins. But the garden you could spend all day in. Large, well kept and absolutely stunning. ...  more »

  • The whole idea of an enclosed Garden that is as diverse as the one in Nezu Museum is amazing... :D completely loved the experience. You can also find some turtles basking in the sun in a small river-like water body inside the campus... the bamboo forest is an amazing place too... a feeling of complete seclusion within one of the busiest parts of the city once inside is an experience worth going through. :)
  • Nice little museum in the centre of Tokyo. The garden is splendid, one of the finest Japanese garden in Tokyo. Very peaceful and relaxing. You can get a bowl of green tea and a traditional sweet for a ¥1000 in one of the tea houses. Very enjoyable
  • Fantastic place, exquisite architecture and fabulous exhibits. A must see piece of kengo kuma's work. I was highly impressed with the integration between the building and the garden. The cafe was also great.
  • Lovely museum, manageable exhibitions with some english text. Impressive building. Worth it just for the garden - beautiful, peaceful and relaxing.
  • Love this museum specially for the beautiful gardens at the back. Take your time to stroll around in there and have a cup of tea in the cafe.

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
