Ohara Museum of Art, Kurashiki

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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
