Art Museum

This private art museum located within Tokugawaen in Nagoya City opened in 1935 to showcase items donated by the 19th lord of the Owari Tokugawa clan and his in-laws. The collection exceeds 10,000 items and is comprised of daimyo (feudal lord) implements passed down in the Owari Tokugawa clan such as relics related to Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, articles purchased from other daimyo families, and donations from wealthy merchants. The collection includes numerous National Treasures, Important Cultural Properties, and important works of art, and is famous for items such as Genji Monogatari Emaki (The Picture Scroll of the Tale of Genji)” and Hatsune no Chodo. Displays in the permanent section allow visitors to catch a glimpse of life in the Owari clan, and exhibitions are also held in accordance with the seasons as well as different themes.

          Aichi is a prefecture of great natural beauty with Nagoya city at its heart, a busy hub home to a labyrinth of underground shops and the 17th-century Nagoya Castle. Castles are easy to find in this history-rich prefecture, but the highlight for history buffs has to be the Museum Meiji-mura, where preserved buildings from the turn of the 20th century are displayed in all their grandeur in an outdoor museum.
