Very interesting Museum. Three exhibition galleries and a good Japanese traditional garden. I especially enjoyed seeing so many Ming Dinasty ceramic.

Can be difficult in a crowded city like Tokyo to find quiet public places removed from the hustle bustle. The Nezu Museum is a great place to take that slow stroll while contemplating the deeper meanings of life.

One of the best museums I visited in Tokyo in an immaculate, tranquil setting. Well worth a visit! Had a mixture of sculptures, artwork and spectacular gardens. If you venture into the gardens you'll be rewarded by a cafe that's right on the middle of the grounds, set in amongst the trees.

Very peaceful museum hidden in the very end of Aoyama. It's really worth the entrance fee to just go in and see the huge Japanese garden inside. Be sure to stop by and have some tea/coffee at the museum's cafe. So serene.

We always enjoy the garden. Bring your camera on suny days for potentially great garden photos. The museum is relatively small with four large rooms but the selection of pieces has always been excellent.

This museum is a beautiful modern piece of architecture with traditional exhibitions. The current exhibition of antique Chinese ceramics wasn't really my cup of tea but I was very happy to have visited. It's a beautiful space, and the Japanese garden is gorgeous and surprisingly big. I think it will be even more beautiful next month with the fall colours.... More

The Nezu Museum is located in a beautiful building with a great collection of old Japanese art. It's not very big, but the beautiful garden is. Totally zen and rustique in the middle of Tokyo. Must go.

Museum is rather small, some interesting works and some not so much. But the garden is really a hidden gem, take your time and wander everywhere- there are statues everywhere.
