Gotoh Museum is close to the upscale residential area of Setagaya and is famous for its hand scroll collection of Tale of Genji. When I visited the museum on 9th of October the museum had the exhibition of Japanese tea tools owned or associated with legendary tea masters or feudal lords. The garden is also nice to stroll. It may not be as excellently designed as Rikugien or other popular Tokyo stroll gardens. But this garden has the area where his collection of jizo statues can be seen. And its red gate is really impressive. What is most impressive about its garden is its collection of "toro" or garden stone lanterns. You can see a wide variety of stone lanterns there. This museum and garden may sometimes closed for a long time. Check the status before you visit.
