Fodor's Review

On view are traditional Japanese and Asian works of art owned by Meiji-period railroad magnate and politician Kaichiro Nezu. For the main building, architect Kengo Kuma designed an arched roof that rises two floors and extends roughly half a block through this upscale Minami Aoyama neighborhood. At any one time, the vast space houses a portion of the 7,000 works of calligraphy, paintings, sculptures, bronzes, and lacquerware that comprise the Nezu's collection. The museum

is also home to one of Tokyo's finest gardens, featuring 5 acres of ponds, rolling paths, waterfalls, and teahouses.

Tokyo Oasis

This place is so special and beautiful. After being in Kyoto and Nara first, I found Tokyo non-descript and boring (other than the amazing shopping of course). Nezu totally changed my opinion of Tokyo (it and the Koishikawa Korakuen Gardens). The art is spectacular and the garden even more so. It's worth the entrance fee just to see the garden. This is a not-to-be-missed in Tokyo.
