  • 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.

  • Very nice architecture. We spent more time than needed just to contemplate the design. If you like this kind of place I strongly suggest to boon a night in Naoshima or a day trip where they are many buildings and museums with that design.

  • Peaceful place. You should go there when there’s less people. The building itself represent the philosophy of Daisetsu Suzuki where you can experience the beauty of simplicity and details. You should go to the meditation space and enjoy the spirit of zen.

  • I didn't know Mr. Suzuki but the visit was great. I left the museum very interested in his work as well as in zen budhism.

  • 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.
