Nomura Art Museum (野村美術館)


Art Museum

An art museum located near the north gate of the Nanzen-ji Zen Temple. The museum was founded in 1984 based largely around the collection of Tokushichi Nomura, founder of Nomura Securities. The museum’s collection consists of tea ceremony implements, paintings, calligraphy works, Noh masks, and Noh costumes gathered by Nomura, who, while being active as an industrialist, also greatly enjoyed the tea ceremony and Noh theater. The museum displays selections from its collection of some 1,700 items, including seven Important Cultural Properties such as calligraphic works by Sesson Shukei and Syuho Myocho.

          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.
