Welcome to the Museum

  The Nikaido Museum of Art, specialized in Nihonga, opened in October 10th of 1994. Its core collection consists of Kakejiku (hanging scroll) mainly focuses on Kindai Nihonga ( Modern Japanese paintings after Meiji era: 1868~) , donated by the Nikaido Distillery Co., Ltd..
Kakejiku was from China as a Buddhist picture in the Asuka era(593~703). But after that it had been cultivated with high artistic value in a Japanese way. And it becomes one of the Japanese traditional Art. It is usually displayed at Tokonoma , a special space in a Japanese style room. When you face to the art, you really can clear your mind of thoughts. We hope you have the rich time with our collection.
