Ippuku Museum of Art

History and Outline

The incorporated foundation Ippuku Museum of Art opened in 1983 with donations from Aoyagi Masaji, an industrialist from Toyama Prefecture. He made a donation of old works of Japanese and Oriental art that he had collected for many years and private funds to this museum. This museum is operated on the fundamental principle of the harmonization of great works of art and nature. Just behind there is a grand view of Northern Alps, which gives visitors a refreshing feeling.
