The museum was first opened in 1941, thanks to a bequest from Kaichiro Nezu I. He loved antiques and collected various art works of Japanese and East Asian arts, and the museum now has more than 7,000 items. Kaichiro is famous as the King of Railways because he was involved in many railway building projects. He was such an industrialist, also was the president of Asahi and Sapporo Beer Company and Nissin, which is now famous for Cup Noodle.
The museum has 6 galleries and exhibits its collections partially by turns. When I visit there, I could enjoy tea cups, Japanese dolls, and ancient Chinese bronzes about 12 century, B.C.!
This museum has a Japanese garden with some Asian taste, and this is definitely my favorite garden in Tokyo.
