Okura Museum of Art
2-10-3 Toranomon, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-0001 Japan
Okura Museum of Art was established as Japan’s first private art museum by Okura Kihachiro (1837-1928), an industrialist active from the 19th century to the early 20th century. Kihachiro devoted himself to the development of industry and foreign trade. He also participated in several distinguished educational and charitable endeavors.
Kihachiro lamented how so many Japanese artworks were leaving the country, so he established the Okura Museum of Art Foundation in 1917 to help preserve these artworks and further Japanese culture. He had previously amassed a collection of cultural assets over a 50-year period and he now donated these to the museum alongside land, buildings and funds for the museum’s upkeep.
Unfortunately, the museum’s original building and all the exhibits on display at the time were destroyed in the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923. A new quake-and-fire-proof gallery was then built in classical Chinese style based on a design by the renowned architect Ito Chuta. The museum reopened in 1928 with a collection centered on items that had survived the disaster. This became the basis for the modern-day Okura Museum of Art.
Kihachiro’s son Kishichiro (1882-1963) also supported the maintenance of the gallery, in accordance with his father’s will, and he donated a number of masterpieces collected over his lifetime, including several modern paintings.
The museum’s collection features a wide range of paintings, sculpture, calligraphy and decorative objects from Japan and various regions across Asia. The collection consists of around 2,500 items in total,
Okura Tokyo. We hope our museum can provide guests from the hotel and visitors from all over with an opportunity to appreciate some of the finest examples of Japanese and Eastern art.
