This museum (which is in Omotesando, not near Nezu Station, go figure) is a jewel of an art museum that showcases beautifully curated exhibits, focusing on traditional Japanese arts and crafts. The price of admission includes wandering the paths of its delightfully secluded garden, which manages to feel uncrowded even during iris season.
Open: Every day except closed on Mondays, Dec 29 – Jan 3 and during exhibit preparation
Hours: 10:00 – 17:00
Admission: Adult ¥1100 (¥1300 for special exhibition), student (high school and above) ¥800 (¥1000 for special exhibition)
For the upcoming exhibition schedule, check the Nezu Museum website
