Timed-Entry Reservations and
Updated Requests of Visitors

Notification for the start date and time of reservation of "The Wonders of Buddhist Ritual Implements"

  1.  The on-line tickets of "The Wonders of Buddhist Ritual Implements" will be on sale from 1 p.m., February 14.

The Nezu Museum has introduced an online timed-entry reservation system, for use by all visitors, as one of our measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

  • Please purchase a timed-entry ticket 1 hour prior to the beginning of the time slot of your choice. (Payment is by credit card only.)
  • • Even if you are eligible for free admission, because you have an invitation postcard, you must still make a reservation online.
  • No reservation required for NEZUCLUB members.
  • • Reservations can be made for up to four visitors at a time. Please refrain from group visits for the time being.

For customers who do not have an environment to make online reservations, we have prepared a few same-day tickets at the reception each day. However, there is a possibility that the tickets have been already sold out by the time of your visit. In addition, since customers who have made a reservation in advance have priority, you may have to wait for a time until you enter. If you have a credit card, and smartphone or computer and printer, please make an online reservation in advance.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation in using the online reservation system and with our other updated requests.

Using the Reservation System

  1. (1) Once you have completed your purchase of a timed-entry ticket, you cannot make changes in or cancel the ticket.
  2. (2) If you arrive before your reserved time slot, you have to wait for admission. In addition, congestion is expected with immediately after the start time of each time slot. We recommend that you visit the museum a little later than the start time. (After you enter the museum, you may enjoy the exhibitions until closing time.)
