Otani Memorial Art Museum, Nishinomiya City



"Otani Memorial Art Museum, Nishinomiya City" was opened in 1972 after Nishinomiya City received a donation of land, buildings, and artworks from OTANI Takejiro (former president of Showa Electrode and current company name of SEC Carbon Co.).

While focusing on modern Japanese Western-style paintings, modern Japanese-style paintings, and modern French paintings, the museum also collects works by local artists, mainly from the Hanshin area, and has a collection of over 1,300 pieces. As the birthplace of Hanshin modernism, the museum also offers special exhibitions that give visitors a sense of the artistic culture, architecture, and lifestyle where tradition and high culture coexist.

Besides the artworks, the garden with a waterfall flowing through it is a must-see. Seasonal flowers can be admired, and there is a suikinkutsu (water fountain) to enjoy the clear sound of the water. Sculptures by MOTONAGA Sadamasa, OKAMOTO Taro, and others are also installed throughout the garden.
