The Kitchoan Museum of Art, Kamakura was opened in 2001 by Minamoto Kitchoan, a member of the Soke family, in the hope that the public would be able to see the works he collected as vessels for Japanese confectionery.
The museum has a permanent exhibit of about twenty works by Kitaoji Rosanjin, a gourmet and ceramic artist associated with the Kamakura period. Rosanjin put his heart and soul into his works, which include tableware for cooking, calligraphy, painting, and lacquerware, and other works that illustrate his diverse talents. In addition, four special exhibitions are always held four times a year to coincide with the beautiful changes of the four seasons in Kamakura.
