Adachi Museum of Art

Yasugi-shi, Japan

"The garden is, so to speak, a picture scroll" said the late founder of the museum. Adachi Zenko. His thoughts about Japanese painting and his passion for landscape gardening produced 165,000 square meters Japanese garden: The Dry Landscape Garden, The White Gravel and Pine Garden, he Moss Garden, and The Pond Garden. With every step you take, the graceful view before you makes you calm and in accordance with the Japanese paintings. The changing seasons, with azaleas in the spring time, the soft verdant green in summer, the glowing red of maples in autumn, and the snowscape of winter, all add to tour enjoyment of the museum. The museum collection of artwork includes the work of such great artists of modern Japanese painting as Yokoyama Taikan, Takeuchi Seiho, Kawai Gyokudo, Tomioka Tessai, Sakakibara Shiho and Uemura Shoen, among others.

Moreover, now is the time to see the elegant gardens and the great paintings together, Our museum is noted for having the largest collection of Taikan's work and twenty of his works are regularly on exhibit.
