We came for the screen with irises, only to find that's not always on display - our mistake but the English website doesn't make that easily clear. Putting that aside, it's a lovely building, lots of space and air, and the gardens are a peaceful...More

We enjoyed our visit to this small museum which highlights Asian art from the last 2,000 years. In addition, there are spectacular gardens with tea houses. It is hard to believe this is in the middle of Tokyo because the gardens are so peaceful and...More

Nezu started out as a private museum and now for public, houses a small but lovely display of treasures for art lovers. Very easy access by subway and a short walk from the station, clear directions. It is a beautiful house with a gorgeous attached...More

Really went to the Nezu to see Irises, but it was not on display. It is stored away more often than shown so make sure you check with them if you want to see it. Otherwise, there were too many chinese exhibits for my taste...More

Consider this a morning well spent as well as a welcome respite from the superficial & hyper commercial surroundings of Omotesandō!

This is a beautiful museum that art lovers should not miss. Both the regular and special exhibitions had Japanese and English explanations; all object placards were also in both languages. The exhibition and quality of objects on display was excellent. The garden behind the museum...More

Limited exhibits, but superb gardens and building. Worth the visit if in the area, even if just for the afternoon tea. Disappointing museum shop compared to others in Tokyo

Inspired by the three part documentary on Japan on TV we set off in search of this painting at the Nezu. Unfortunately it is only on view in the spring from mid April so this was not to be. The museum is spacious with a...More

Terrific small museum that encapsulates Japan and region. Spent an hour and a half in one room looking at incense containers. Who would have thought it would be so mesmerising.

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
galleries.

Depends on how interested you are in old Chinese artifacts and how much you are interested in gardens. Two very different things. When I was there (mid-September 2017) there was so many Chinese artifacts that I felt like I'd... More
