The gardens here are a perfect city sanctuary to escape to for some exploration and centering. Well worth the short diversion! After your stroll in the gardens, enjoy some tea and matcha cake at the glass-walled Nezu Cafe overlooking the grounds.

Very spacious and quiet. They display exhibits elegantly with dim lights in rather dark rooms and the explanation panel is informative. When I visited they exhibited Blue and White Ceramics of Imari and they were very beautiful. It started snowing luckily and lasted for a short period of time which is rare in Tokyo when I was walking in the... More

I had this very high on my list of things to see in Tokyo - and really enjoyed it, especially the gardens. I thought the shrine would be close by - but ran out of time to find which was disappointing as i thought they were together. The gardens were really a highlight for me in Tokyo - a city... More

If you go to Harajuku do yourself a favor and keep walking all the way down the main strip. Keep walking past all the high-end stores to the very end of the street until you get to this beautiful museum. Don't miss the gardens, they're the best part.

A quite tasty meal for lunch, though the bread served with the meal was quite ordinary, and having waited for some time to be seated, we had to ask for a menu once seated as they forgot us

Lovely collections, especially enjoyed the tea vessels. The building itself is well worth a visit, and the surrounding garden on a warm day is enchanting.

The architecture of this compact museum is clean lines and the serenity is entrancing. The sculpture gardens are as much of a showcase as the museum exhibitions and my children enjoyed discovering its pathways. The exhibition texts are in English. The site used to be a private residence and has the scale of a large home and gardens. The tea... More

the museum itself is on smaller side, but I do love the building. However, the best part of the museum, is its garden. Beautiful, quiet place in the heart of the city.

The Nezu Museum has some iconic works of art and many treasures across the genres in its permanent collection, and the special exhibitions are always worth seeing. The garden is gorgeous and worth a visit on its own, especially in autumn and when the irises are out. There is a nice gift shop and also a cafe (which I haven't... More
