We Nagoya citizens are very proud of the Tokugawa Art Museum, there are so many National Treasures of Japan, especially the Genji Monogatari Emaki, three Heian period illustrated handscrolls of The Tale of Genji, dating to the 1130s, is the most important National Treasure. Also there is the Tokugawa Garden, beautiful traditional Japanese garden, is located next to the Museum.

Unlike many private museums in Japan, which are based on collections assembled in the modern era by corporations or entrepreneurs, the Tokugawa Art Museum houses the hereditary collection of the Owari branch of the Tokugawa clan, which ruled the Owari Domain in what is now Aichi Prefecture. The main building of the museum was constructed in the 1930s in a classic Japanese style with western elements.

The permanent exhibition is housed in a historical reproduction of the living quarters of the Owari daimyō, allowing visitors to view the objects as they were actually used in settings such as a Japanese tea-house or Noh stage. The museum also mounts temporary exhibitions in a building that has been declared a national cultural property.

I am looking forward to seeing you in the Museum, and explaining to you how Japanese Treasure is colorful and delicate.
