The Art Lover's Guide to Japanese Museums

University of Washington Press
The museums of Japan feature rich collections and excellent exhibitions in world-class galleries. Yet they can be difficult to navigate without first-hand knowledge. The Art Lover's Guide to Japanese Museums acts as a personal guide, introducing readers to some of the most distictive and inspiring museums in the country. In-depth information is given about each listed venue, including the stories behind their creation. From magnificent traditional arts to fascinating artist's houses and from sleek contemporary museums to idiosyncratic galleries, museums are the perfect gateway to discover Japan's culture both past and present.
