Museum Nezu

Museum Nezu

The Nezu Museum is a really special museum, this is a place where the traditional art of Japan and East Asia fit perfectly into a modern museum of minimalist style. Kengo Kuma was in charge of the design of the museum itself, and the museum is characterized by high ceilings, walls made of bamboo, amazing windows that look at the greenery around the museum. The feeling is completely natural as you walk through this museum and it is more like visiting a large garden where peace and tranquility reign than a classic art gallery.

The museum was once the private residence of Nezu Kaichirō, president of the Japanese Railways. Much of his impressive collection of 7.400 works of art has been given to the museum for use. Paintings, sculptures, ceramics and traditional calligraphy of Japan are exhibited here. After the death of Nezu Kaichirō, the collection - premodern Japanese and East Asian art, was preserved, and his son turned Kaichirō's private residence into a museum for exhibiting many works.

In addition to the permanent collection, the museum organizes several temporary exhibitions every year. You need to pay an additional ticket for those exhibitions.
