Important Cultural Property "Double-Ram Zun" China probably Hunan province, 13th-11th centuries B.C.

Nezu Museum first opened its doors in 1941, in accordance with the last wishes of the late Nezu Kaichirō Sr. (1860-1940), a successful industrialist. The museum is located on the site of the former Nezu family residence in the Minami-Aoyama district of central Tokyo. It re-opened in October of 2009, newly designed by Kengo Kuma.
Thanks to a bequest from Nezu Kaichirō Sr., the museum’s collection of more than 7,400 Japanese and East Asian works of art includes seven works designated as National Treasures, 87 Important Cultural Properties, and 94 Important Art Objects.
The expanse of this open, relaxing space is an enjoyable place to appreciate art. The lush 17,000 square meters of Japanese garden creates an oasis in the city where you can take pleasure in the passage of the seasons.
