About the Museum

Setup in a spacious traditional style, the Nezu Museum features a garden and pond with several teahouses at the private residence of Nezu Kaichiro, built in order to preserve his private collection. Kaichiro was an enthusiastic practitioner of “the way of tea,” and therefore the Nezu Museum is considered especially strong in art related to tea. The collection to date is comprised of Nezu Kaichiro’s private collection and donations from several other private collectors. More than 7,400 objects, including calligraphy, painting, sculpture, ceramics, lacquer, metalwork, bamboo crafts and textiles, feature alongside seven items designated as National Treasures.
