A Guide to Toyama Museums
Updated: Apr 7, 2020
TAD is offering ambitious presentation of arts from the beginning of 20th century up to the present time, standing on the three viewpoints from the world, from Japan and from Toyama.
The Suiboku Museum, Toyama was opened in 1999, with a primary focus on exhibiting modern Japanese ink paintings, or “suibokuga.” The word “suiboku” in the museum’s name doesn’t just mean “ink paintings,” but evokes the fullness of Japanese aesthetics. In the permanent exhibition rooms, you can see works by leading artists like Takeuchi Seihō, Yokoyama Taikan, Hishida Shunsō, as well as others with a connection to Toyama Prefecture such as Kaho Akira, Takamura Gyūjin, and Iwasaki Hajin.
The Toyama Glass Art Museum in Toyama City showcases a large collection of glass art from around the world.
