Japanese and international artists showcased in a stylish gallery

This striking building in the foothills of Mt. Tanigawa showcases Japanese art by Saeki Yuzo, Yasui Sotaro, and Kumagai Morikazu alongside international artists, including Picasso, Renoir, and Rodin. Early 20th-century paintings hang alongside Asian pottery, scrolls, and other artwork that dates back to the 8th century.

The building was designed by architect Yoshimura Junzo and completed posthumously. Yoshimura is best-known for designing the teahouse at the Rockefeller Estate in New York, the east and west wings of the Nara National Museum, and the Norwegian embassy in Tokyo.
