The Tenshin Memorial Museum of art, Ibaraki opened on November 8, 1997, to honor the achievements of Tenshin Okakura, Taikan Yokoyama, and other Izura artists, to provide opportunities for art appreciation through exhibitions of modern and contemporary Japanese paintings, and to disseminate information on Japanese art. Izura, a scenic spot with beautiful large and small coves and pine forests, is a historical place where the first section of the Japan Art Academy (painting) was relocated in 1906, and where Okakura Tenshin and other artists from Izura were active. The area around the museum is dotted with historical sites, including Rokkakudo, the former site of the Japan Art Institute, which reminds us of those days, and you can enjoy strolling around.
The museum will be closed from August 1, 2020 to February 5, 2021 for air conditioning installation.
