The Izu Photo Museum is part of the Clematis no Oka, a beautiful complex that combines art and nature at the slow pace of the hills of mount Takayama. It is a very understated yet beautiful building where every detail has been designed with the light touch of an intrinsically Japanese manner. The building feels like a journey, a story told through a series of spaces, and gardens that interlink naturally, unpretentiously , allowing the exhibition to talk to the visitor without interruption. The subtlety of details contributes to the overall experience. The display walls, for instance, appear suspended, as supporting structure is painted in black and the white boards do not not touch the floor which lowers its edge as a contribution to the overall effect. The gardens act as pauses in the journey. They are windows to places one wants to stop and contemplate, reminiscent of those photographies that Hiroshi Sugimoto took at the New York Natural History Museum.

Ukiyo-e originated at the beginning of the Tokugawa era as a form of popular art unique to Japan. However, from the end of the Tokugawa era to the beginning of the Meiji Period, many masterpieces leaked out to the West, and it was said that one had to go abroad in order to enjoy hanga prints and original artwork.

The late Seizo Ota V lamented such conditions, and from the beginning of the Showa Period, he spent more than half a century collecting ukiyo-e, compiling a collection of over 14,000 pieces.

After Ota Seizo's death, his family fulfilled his vision -contributing to the promotion of Japan's traditional art- by holding exhibitions of artwork that had never been available to the public before.

What makes the Ota collection especially remarkable is its depth, with representative masterpieces from the birth of the ukiyo-e tradition to its height. The colors and materials of the originals have been perfectly preserved.
Mr. Ota hoped that displaying this collection could contribute to the cultivation of a deeper sense of beauty, and it is our earnest desire that this Museum will be visited by as many people as possible.

excelente museo de kengo kuma

The industrialist and president of Tobu Railway, NEZU Kaichiro, Sr.(1860-1940) established a foundation in his will to preserve his personal collection. The museum opened at his private residence on this Aoyama site the following year,in 1941. Set in the spacious traditional-style garden with pond are several tea houses (chashitsu) because Kaichiro was an enthusiastic practitioner of 'the way of tea.'The Nezu Museum is considered especially strong in arts related to 'tea.'

Nezu Kaichiro's holdings of Japanese and other Asian pre-modern arts form the core of the museum collection. Today--thanks also to outstanding recent donations by several private collectors--it comprises more than 7,400 objects including calligraphy, painting, sculpture, ceramics, lacquer, metalwork, bamboo crafts and textiles. There are seven items designated as National Treasures, 87 Important Cultural Properties, and 94 works registered as Important Art Objects.

The museum's group of ancient Chinese bronzes is world famous. Other well-known works include Chinese Song/Yuan period paintings and calligraphy such as Fishing Village at Sunset by Muxi, and Quail attributed to Li Anzhong. Japanese religious paintings are well represented by such Buddhist works as Dainichi Nyorai (Mahavairocana) and the Kongokai (Diamond) Mandala, and the famed Shinto painting, Nachi Waterfall. The museum has extensive holdings of paintings and ceramics from after the fifteenth century and has become best known for the folding-screen painting Irises, by the seventeenth century Rimpa artist, Ogata Korin.

Kaichiro avidly collected hanging scrolls and utensils for tea gatherings. He adopted the tea name of Seizan, "Blue/Clear Mountain." Particularly fine examples of the tea aesthetic that he collected range from thirteenth century Chinese celadon flower vases, Japanese Ashiya type tea kettles and Seto tea caddies and incense containers, to Korean ido tea bowls. The Museum's commitment to sustain his legacy is reflected by the installation of a new chashitsu in the garden to supplement those available for use by tea afichiados today and in the future.

Architect KUMA Kengo designed and supervised the reformation and new museum building. He has tried to create an experience of wa or Japanese harmony. The visitor will enter along the side of the new building, coming off the energized commercial streets of Omote Sando. Tradition has inspired the graceful expanse of Kuma's massive tile roof and dark verticals of the exterior walls that signal entering a special place. Extensive use of glass in the entry and central hall brings the magnificent garden into interior spaces. At the same time the display galleries incorporate the latest technologies for viewing, climate control and preservation of objects.
