You can sneak past this museum walking around Shibuya towards Harajuku. From the street side it appears nondescript but the treasures it ensconces are precious. Art lovers, a must on your stay.

We love art galleries but were disappointed in this one. The architecture is striking but the collection on display when we visited was minimal and esoteric, mainly ancient metal artefacts. But the garden is beautiful and you forget you are in a bustling crowded city.

The Nezu is worth a visit for the building, the contents and the garden. The architecture is beautiful. The treasures inside are glorious and the garden large and beautiful. Allow two to three hours so that you are in a calm and unhurried space. Very...More

If there is one museum you choose to see in Tokyo, this should be it. The collection is nice, but the building and garden are the real standouts--and it's worth visiting just to see those.

If there's one museum you must see in Tokyo--this is it. The collection is interesting, but the building and the garden are the real stars--and it's worth coming here just to see these two things.

Akasaka / Roppongi
Not so long ago the Akasaka and Roppongi areas were
famous for their nightlife, high-class restaurants,
bars and clubs. More recently, with the opening of
Roppongi Hills, Tokyo Midtown and Akasaka Sacas, the
area has declared itself as the most fashionable spot
to be seen. The area also hosts the National Art
Center and the Mori Art Museum and lots of trendy art
