D. T. Suzuki Museum, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • Excellent but small museum. Take your time as you go through it and carefully consider the few exhibits as they have been created with great care. I sat in the small library and read through a chapter of one of his books. A great experience and peaceful exercise! It’s fine for children, but it’s definitely geared more towards adults. Take time to sit in the contemplation space and look out over the small man-made pond. A tranquil and relaxing place that you could walk through in 10 minutes or stay an hour.

  • Probably the most zen museum I have been to and the least busy one in Kanazawa at weekends. Very calming, quiet space with a contemplation room which looks out over the surrounding water and allows you to gather your thoughts. A space which shows that a minimalist approach to living is probably the best tonic for calming the mind. Don’t miss the gardens at the back.

  • Beautifully designed museum and museum grounds. Unfortunately the actual exhibition is extremely minimalistic. I hoped for some insight into the train of thought and work of D.T. Suzuki...

  • I loved this place, more for its design and exterior than the actual exhibits relating to it's eponymous subject. The garden at the back is also worth a wander, secluded, and green with a small lake in the middle. The whole thing is worth an hour+ I would say

  • Wonderful building; just ¥300 to get in with a rotating exhibition of DT Suzuki related art and literature. The library is tiny but usable. But the real gems are the outside spaces. Come, turn off your phone and walk slowly and enjoy the space. Arrive early, miss the later-morning visitors. Don't miss the large adjacent / connected garden out back.
