This is a small but very elegant museum dedicated to the life and work of Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki. He introduced Zen Buddhism to the west. It is not a big museum and you can not see much.

My ryokan host said this was his favourite museum. It’s a lively contemplative place where you can also sit and read special books. I loved its water pool. Very good English interpretations. Best combined with the Nakamura museum nearby.

A unique mirror pond. Words cannot describe the experience. You must go for it yourself. Much more to admire about the architecture of the buildings in the museum. People come here to contemplate and get peaceful insight.

One single worthwhile exhibition makes this an unusual experience - the contemplating room next to the pool and the pool. If and when you come it would make sense to know what Suzuki is all about or spent some hours reading in the library of the ,museum.
