Artizon Museum was once called "Bridgestone Museum of Art", but the museum changed its name when it was reopened after renovation in 2020.
The museum was originally opened in 1952 and has been run by the foundation of Shojiro Ishibashi, the founder of the Bridgestone Corporation since then.
Stored and displayed in the museum are works of art by impressionists and 20th century modern / contemporary artists of the West such as Monet, Renoir, Cezanne, Picasso, and
Matisse, along with those by Japanese artists as of the Meiji era (1868 - 1912) including Takeji Fujishima and Shigeru Aoki.
Visitors can enjoy the famous paintings in a relaxing atmosphere while forgetting the bustle of the city.
