Museum in The Musashino, Tama area

poster for Chihiro Art Museum Tokyo

The museum is built on the site of the home and atelier where Chihiro Iwasaki spent the last 22 years of her life and produced many works. In 1977, three years after her death, the world's first picture book museum, the Chihiro Iwasaki Picture Book Museum (now the Chihiro Museum of Art), opened. Then in 2002, with respect for the time that Chihiro spent living there and the history of the museum, the public space was significantly increased and the building was reborn as a barrier-free building. Visitors can take in her pictures while sat on Chihiro’s favorite sofa, experience the painstakingly restored atelier, and enjoy Chihiro Garden where the flowers and trees that the artist loved and raised were planted.
