Nezu Museum (根津美術館) is an art museum in Aoyama, Tokyo. The museum was founded by Nezu Kaichiro in 1940 and holds the provate collection of pre-modern Japanese and East Asian art of the founder himself. The museum was closed due to large-scale renovation and re-opened in 2009 with a completely new building.
