Nezu Museum

Originally founded in 1941 to showcase the extensive collection of industrialist Nezu Kaichiro, the museum was redesigned in 2009 by the well known architect Kengo Kuma.

Located along a quiet bamboo passage off the busy Omotesando district, the museum showcases one of the world’s finest collections of Japanese and East Asian art, including seven works designated as National Treasures. The museum also includes famous paintings, calligraphy, sculpture, ceramics, textiles and archaeological materials, as well as objects in lacquer, metal, and wood. The Museum also houses Chinese bronzes of the Shang and Zhou dynasties and is known for its large Japanese-style garden.
