In 1917, an entrepreneur known for his contribution to the modernization of Japan named Kihachiro Okura founded “Okura Shokukan”, the first private art museum in Japan. The museum has contributed to the protection and development of Japanese art culture. Kishichiro, the eldest son of Kihachiro and the founder of Okura Hotels & Resorts, continues his father’s legacy in promoting Japanese culture to the rest of the world by collecting modern Japanese paintings, including Daikan Yokoyama. The Okura Collection is on display in Kyushu National Museum to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Okura Shukokan, featuring 110 Japanese art pieces from the private museum. The collection includes three National Treasures and 10 Important Cultural Properties and pieces from the Heian period to modern times. Do not miss this rare opportunity!
