Nezu Museum

The Nezu Museum first opened its doors, in the Minami Aoyama district of Tokyo in 1941, thanks to a bequest from Nezu Kaichiro I. Set on a massive site covering more than 20,000 square meters, the Musuem is surround by a Japanese garden rich with mature tress and foliage that reflects the four seasons, along with tea houses scattered around an extensive pond.

Today the Museum is home to a diverse collection of Japanese and East Asian arts ranging from painting and calligraphy to sculpture, ceramics, lacquer ware, textiles and archaeological materials. The collection of more than 7,400 items proudly includes 7 works designated as National Treasures, along with 87 Important Cultural Properties and 94 Important Art Objects.
