The Nezu Museum, formerly known as the Nezu Institute of Fine Arts, is an art museum in the Minato district of Tokyo. The museum was established to preserve and exhibit the collection of premodern Japanese and East Asian art that Nezu Kaichiro (1860-1940) passionately built.
The Nezu Museum has introduced an online timed-entry reservation system, for use by all visitors, as one of their measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Moreover, for the time being, the opening hours of NEZUCAFÉ is 10am - 4:30pm (last order: 4:00pm).
After Kaichiro's death, his son and heir, Kaichiro Jr., established a foundation to preserve the collection in 1940 and opened the Nezu Museum in 1941 at its current location, where the Nezu family had previously lived. Much of it, including the galleries, garden, and tea house, was lost to a fire in 1945 during World War II, but the museum resumed exhibitions in 1946 with artwork that had been evacuated to a safer location during the war.
The museum's collection, which was quite extensive at the beginning with 4,642 works, was expanded to around 7,400 works. This includes seven national treasures, 87 important cultural assets and 94 important art objects.
