Travel Guide - Adachi Museum of Art

Information

Adachi Museum of Art is well known for both its superb Japanese garden and its collection of modern Japanese paintings.
The museum harmoniously combines approximately 1,500 of contemporary Japanese paintings produced after 19 century with a 43,000 square-meter awe-inspiring Japanese garden that has been lauded both in Japan and abroad.

The galleries in the museum feature Nihonga paintings by Yokohama Taikan, ceramic art, and Douga paintings which depict children's fairy tales.
The museum's spectacular and immaculately maintained Japanese garden is ranked number one out of over 800 gardens in Japan by the popular publication, American Journal of Japanese Gardening.
