Nezu Museum was founded in 1941 to conserve and exhibit the collection of pre-modern Japanese and East Asian art that businessman Nezu Kaichiro (1860-1940) had accumulated. Among the 7,400 items are paintings, ceramics, and sculptures. Architect Kengo Kuma designed and supervised the re-building of the museum in 2009, which carries his signature style of vertical lines. The adjacent Japanese garden is one of the most exquisite in Tokyo.
