About the Museum

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. The building was constructed in the Japanese style, a single story with a garden and a tea room, and is intended to be a serene place where visitors can experience the richness of nature. 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. Exhibition rooms 1 and 2 are used for a wide range of special exhibitions focusing on Japanese arts and crafts.
