This private museum focuses on Chinese bronze ware and ceramics. It is extremely well designed and has English explanations. The highlight for us, though, was the gorgeous Japanese Garden which is behind the museum itself. Waterfalls and a stream with several isolated sitting sites allow...More

Seeing 2000 year old artifacts always gets me excited. It is fascinating the things humans could do so long ago. This is not a traditional art museum with paintings, but more of a history museum with amazing pieces that demonstrate some of the history of...More

Nezu Museum is architecturally attractive and boasts a peaceful Japanese garden. Though expensive, the restaurant is worth a visit purely for the views. Service is professional and food is of a good standard. The museum itself is tidy, professional and features beautiful historical Japanese artifacts.

The most beautiful I have ever seen. Terrific cafe overlooking the garden. Excellent art museum bequeathed by "The Railroad King" of Japan. We loved it all, and 100 times more than the National Art Center, which wanted us to stand in line for 40 minutes...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
