Tokugawa Art Museum complex consists of the museum, Hosa Bunko Library and Tokugawa-en Garden. Main entrance of the complex is the Black Gate (Kuro Mon) then you will see the Main Museum straight ahead, Hosa Library on your right and Japanese Garden entrance on your left. Most of the visitors buy the compound ticket for 1,500 yen to visit all of them. To see them all takes at least two hours.

Tokugawa Art Museum is the main building of the complex, the exhibits mainly deal with items related to Tokugawa Shogunate family, and its collected items include the old written copies of the Tale of Genji.

Hosa Library boasts the collection of more than 110,000 items owned by Owari Tokugawa family.

Tokugawa-en Garden was recently reconstructed in 2004. It features waterfalls, Bai Causeway styled bridge, and recreation of the landscape simiar to that of midstream gorges of Kiso River.
