Adachi Museum of Art

Adachi Museum of Art

20th century art surrounded by elaborate Japanese gardens

The Adachi Museum of Art was founded in 1980 by Adachi Zenko as a way to combine his passions for Japanese art and gardens. As well as the beautiful garden which is viewed through windows as if a work of art itself, the museum houses 1,300 artworks from the twentieth century which are rotated seasonally. The museum also has a permanent exhibition displaying the work of Yokoyama Taikan, a major contributor to nihonga classic Japanese art techniques.
