When it opened in 1930, Ohara Museum of Art held the first collection of Western art to be permanently exhibited in Japan. Created in honor of painter Kojima Torajiro, the museum now houses an expansive collection of Western and 20th century Japanese art, with special emphasis on 19th- and 20th-century French painting and sculpture. Start your tour at the classically styled Main Gallery, meander past the pond where water lilies echo the works of Monet, and finish at the Craft and Asiatic Art Gallery to absorb some Eastern culture. Free audio guides are available. Make Ohara Museum of Art a centerpiece of your Kurashiki vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Kurashiki trip planner .

Ohara Museum of Art Reviews
さりげなく沢山の美術品が展示してありました。手が届きそうな距離で、なんかこんな近くてよいのかなぁ？なんて思いながら拝見しました。 more »A lot of works of art were exhibited casually. I wonder if it is good to be so close in the distance that seems to be reached? I saw while thinking.
な外見となっている美術館であるために、 非常に多くの観光客が来る場所となっており、 多くのツアーのコースとなっている。 more »To be a museum that has become a good appearance, it has become a place where so many tourists come and the course of many tours.
good pieces but most of them covered by glasses without proper lightening Annex exhibition is better cause in exposed condition
Very broad collection of artists! I was pleasantly surprised by the collection. The facility is wheel chair accessible with the exception of about three rooms in the craft and Asian gallery.
