The site of the former Nihon Bijutsu-in (Japan Art Institute) and the residence of Okakura Tenshin, a pioneer in Japan's modern arts, is currently the Okakura Tenshin Memorial Park.
Nihon Bijutsu-in was established here in 1898 by Okakura Tenshin, Yokoyama Taikan, and others.
The hexagonal building within the park houses the Tenshin Zazo (sedentary statue), created by sculptor Hiragushi Denchu.
