Beautiful museum with a temporary exhibit on swords plus a gorgeous large garden. There is a cafe on the grounds. Plenty of storage for bags & coats. Short visit.

Whether this museum is worth visiting depends entirely on the special exhibit at the time. We were there for a terrific exhibit of swords and sword fittings. The garden is really lovely and worth almost as much time as the museum. Good museum shop.

The museum was interesting but my favourite part was the gardens. We came at the best time of year with all the autumn leaves on full resplendent display. The setting was very tranquil and you easily forgot you were in the middle of a busy...More

This is a gem in the middle of the city . A small museum founded by a Japanese rich man (1940) and hosts its collections, as well as other exhibitions. But main attraction is the architecture of the building and the beautiful Japanese gardens attached...More

Marvelous contemporary Japanese architecture (Kengo Kuma) and splendor of the garden, especially in the Fall. An aesthetic experience of timelessness.

Located in lovely Minato, this museum and it's café are a MUST visit. We visited in mid October 2017 and it was a cool, misty rain day. The museum itself is on the small side and takes about an hour or so to visit at...More

This is a jewel box in the center of Tokyo; the garden is amazing and you can make reservations to experience traditional tea ceremonies... Must see if you're in Tokyo!!

On a second visit the exhibits had changed, this time sword fittings occupied the main rooms and what a fabulous exhibit it was. This museum is remarkable including both a beautiful building and exquisite items.

Service staff in cafe seemed reluctant to serve us but everything else about the museum, including the wonder gardens, is lovely.

Close to Omotesando. Beautifully designed museum by Japanese Architect Kengo Kuma. The museum collections themselves are nice, but the museum architecture is worth seeing just on its own. There are also very nice Japanese gardens here and several tea houses within the gardens. Beautiful trees...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
