The Hosomi Museum Kyoto

Updated: Dec 28, 2023



The Hosomi Museum Kyoto is a private museum in Okazaki, Sakyo-ku, Kyoto. It was opened in 1998, based on the collections of three generations of the Hosomi family, beginning with the industrialist and Japanese art collector HOSOMI Kokaan.


The attraction of the collection includes Shinto and Buddhist art, tea ceremony art, Edo paintings such as the Rimpa school, and works covering most of the fields and eras of Japanese art. Aiming to promote and pass on traditional culture to the future, the museum organizes special exhibitions, lectures and other events around the collection.


The museum also has a tearoom, a café/restaurant and a museum shop with modern Japanese goods, making it a gathering place for people with a deep interest in art.
