Not only is the small collection of mainly Japanese Art exquisite, what makes this place special is the architecture of the building and the amazing garden. Go around lunch time, have the western style lunch but don't expect quick service and stroll the gardens at...More

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

Museum in central Tokyo, but I couldn't say once in there. The gardens are beautiful and peaceful. Like an oasis in the city.

Quiet museum. Simple in the layout but still stunning. The garden is my favorite. I could spend hours there.

As everyone has already said, the garden is what really makes a visit to this museum worthwhile. It is a little paradise, with statues half-hidden in shrubbery, natural wildlife like turtles and dragonflies, and beautiful Japanese bonsai and maple trees. Despite the size of the...More

The gardens were our favorite. They were were more natural and less manicured than most of the Japanese gardens we have visited. The best part, though, was that there were not many people in the garden while we were there. We felt as though we...More

The Nezhu is well worth a visit. Although small, the collection is stellar and the galleries are tightly focused, fascinating introductions to Japanese traditional arts. In addition, the museum has an excellent garden, store, and cafe over-looking the garden.

I'm sure, based on reviews, that I would love this museum, however Trip Advisor needs to change their opening times. I travelled right across Tokyo to visit and the place was closed...not the fault of the museum but of TA.

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
