Fujii Art Museum

Art Museum
The characteristic heavy facade of this museum of folk art is modeled after the gate of the second wall of Takayama Castle. The museum houses a collection of approximately 2,500 pieces of antiques and folk art amassed over 70 years by Takayama's resident doctor, Tadaichi Fujii. The building in which the collection is displayed is a clay structure built over five years using all cypress wood in the Edoman style. The building has walls that are nearly one meter thick. The wide-ranging collection contains, among other things, Kyoho dolls made over 270 years ago, hanging scrolls by Yokoyama Taikan and Ikkyu, and Kutani and Imari ware.
