Nezu Museum Garden has two ponds connected by small streams. Following winding pathways, visitors encounter stone lanterns, memorial stones, Buddhas and statues, not to mention well-preserved teahouses. Nezu Kaichiro, president of the Tobu Railway acquired this land as he appreciated its uniquely hilly terrain. The garden was designed in the shinzan-yukoku style. The features to be found here are hills and valleys, using the concepts of creating scenes of nature as a work of art. After exploring the works of art on display, visitors can enjoy the changing seasons in this manicured garden. Nezu museum is a private collection of Japanese art with collections of calligraphy, ceramics and textiles. Nezu Kaichiro was an avid art collector. The site of the museum and garden used to be Mr Nezu’s private residence.
