Seikado Bunko Art Museum
Museum in The Setagaya, Kawasaki area
Founded by Yanosuke Iwasaki (1851–1908, second president of Mitsubishi) and Koyata Iwasaki (1879–1945, fourth president of Mitsubishi), Seikado Bunko Art Museum boasts a collection of some 200,000 classical texts and 5,000 works of Eastern and Western classical art, including seven National Treasures and 83 Important Cultural Properties. The museum’s name, proposed by Yanosuke Iwasaki, comes from a line in the “Shijing” anthology of classical Chinese poetry about preparing a splendid offering for the souls of the ancestors. The museum’s collection was first opened to the public in 1977. It opened as Seikado Bunko Art Museum in a new facility in April 1992 on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Seikado Collection.
