D. T. Suzuki Museum, Kanazawa-shi Reviews

  • The museum of the Buddhist Zen master D. T. Suzuki. Not only the architecture but the philosophy of the whole complex gives you an unbelievable calm while strolling in and around it. The inexpensive entry fee make it worthy of your time spending in there. If you ever come to Kanazawa, this is the must visit place. Definitely recommend it.

  • The gardens were closed but I thought it was a really beautiful place to learn and ponder.

  • Nice little museum. It is a very short visit, so don't hesitate to take your time. The architecture of the building is interesting. A little trail/path behind the museum leads to Kenroku-En.

  • You get a real sense of tranquility here, spend a few hours just sitting and watching the seasons pass

  • My husband and I's favourite sight in Kanazawa. Amazing experience walking through the building and learning about DT Suzuki and Buddhist philosophy, everything is so zen and minimal. Great place to just watch the pond and trees, listen to nature. Highly recommended :)
