Beautiful landscape studded with beauty of a traditional Japanese garden

Old Green
Green of tradition and history

The Nezu Museum which opened in 1941 houses superior pre-modern works of Japanese and oriental art collected by industrialist Kaichiro Nezu (1860 - 1940). Renewed in 2009, the present-day Nezu Museum was designed by Kengo Kuma, who is considered the foremost of modern-day Japanese architects. With 17,000㎡ of area, the garden is full of superior examples that express the beauty of traditional Japanese gardens.

Entrance hall of the museum. A wide range of Japanese and Oriental pre-modern works of art such as painting, calligraphy, pottery and lacquer work, etc., are exhibited in the six galleries.

Photo Spot

The entrance lined by the bamboos is recommended for taking photographs that capture the essence of Old meets New.
While it is located in a place called Aoyama (“blue mountain”), the garden gives the impression of being deep in the mountains. Precious place where you can experience nature and beauty of a traditional Japanese garden.

Something Green

NEZUCAFÉ inside the garden. Once visitors enter the cafe, they are surprised by the large amount of greenery that would not be expected to be found in the city.
