Nezu Museum

Nezu Museum in Omotesando has a sublime collection of antique Oriental art, including several National Treasures. It is also well-known for its lovely Japanese-style garden right in the middle of the bustling metropolis. The museum shop too features plenty of original products based on traditional Japanese motifs, such as tea whisks that function as card stands and straps with irises, as on the National Treasure screens in the collection.
