Nezu Museum 根津美術館

The 7,000 works from the collection of Kaichiro Nezu are exhibited within an oasis of peace and greenery, a few minutes from Omotesando.

Museum Collection

The two-story museum building has been rebuilt, and is a large, airy, atmospheric space where selections of the Museum's approximately 7,400 pieces can be enjoyed in periodically changing general exhibitions, and where special exhibitions are also held. The Museum collection covers many genres of art and craft created by ancient calligraphers, ceramicists, armor makers, metalworkers, textile makers, painters, lacquerware craftspersons, sculptors and others, and includes many archaeological artifacts.

Nezu was an aficionado of the tea ceremony, which uses arts and crafts as focal points, accounting for the breadth of his tastes.

All exhibits have descriptions and explanations in English.

The Nezu Museum has a pleasant cafe and a shop selling good quality souvenirs, books, and catalogs of past exhibitions.
