Okada Museum Of Art
Museum in The Yokohama, Kanagawa area
Hakone is a popular international tourist destination, boasting as many as 20 hot spring clusters, nestled amongst verdant mountains and pristine rivers. Kowakudani (Kowakidani) hot springs are located midway between Yumoto Station and Lake Ashinoko on the Japan National Highway Route No.1, and have been home to the Okada Museum of Art’s exquisite Eastern treasures and collections since autumn 2013. Constructed on the site of the old Kaikatei hotel, built in the Meiji period particular for Western visitors, the museum covers some 6,300 m2 and with a total floor area of about 7,700 m2, exhibiting Japanese, Chinese, and Korean works of art ranging from ancient times through to the present age, all collected by the businessman Okada Kazuo. Okada founded the Museum to carefully preserve for future generations the heritage of East Asia, whilst sharing the joy and pleasure of encounters with beautiful artifacts that lift the spirit. It is with this mission that the museum brings historic Japanese and Asian art to the world, and widely contributes to the furtherment of culture.
