Kyoto Prefectural Insho Domoto Museum of Fine Arts京都府立堂本印象美術館

Art Museum

An art museum located close to the Kinugasa Campus of Ritsumeikan University which collects the works of Japanese painter Insho Domoto, who flourished in the Taisho and Showa periods. Established in 1966 by the artist himself for the display of his works, in 1991 the museum was donated to Kyoto Prefecture. In addition to the artworks themselves, the entire museum, designed inside and out by Domoto, could be called a work of art by the man.

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
