Mori Shusui Museum of Art
This art museum is located on Sannomachi Crossing due-south of JR Toyama Station on National Route 41 is focused primarily on Japanese swords and knives, a rarity even in Japan. Its collection includes two hundred Japanese swords from the Heian period to the modern era. Its exhibits are centered on the works of sword smiths with connections to the Hokuriku area, such as notable Toyama Prefecture sword smiths Norishige and Go no Yoshihiro, the latter of which being one of the Nihon Sansaku (the three best sword smiths in the eyes of Toyotomi Hideyoshi). Visitors may also see works by notable artists of the Nihonga style of painting such as Yokoyama Taikan and Kawai Gyokudo. The museum's first floor also features a shop and cafe, creating an atmosphere that makes it a destination for sword-loving ladies.
