  • 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
  • Lovely museum, manageable exhibitions with some english text. Impressive building. Worth it just for the garden - beautiful, peaceful and relaxing.
  • Beautiful gardens in the middle of Roppongi . The exhibition of scrolls and other ancient artefacts was exquisite. Almost impossible to believe that they have survived a millennia intact, let alone in such pristine condition.
  • Wonderful garden next to omotesando. The exhibition was a bit disappointing but the garden is fantastic. Entrance fee is about 1300 yens.
  • While the garden and the museum is worth a visit, the staff is pretty unfriendly. Definitive avoid the Macha offering. It costs double as much as even in Kyoto, but you'll be treat as in a cheap canteen. Entrance fee is with ¥1300 on the expensive side.
