Close to ART: Okada Museum of Art *RERUN
The Okada Museum of Art, located in Hakone, one of Japan's most famous hot spring locations, opened in 2013. Its collection centers on Japanese art from the ancient to the modern, particularly works from the Edo period dating from the 17th to mid-19th centuries. Visitors can view golden screens used as celebratory decorations, as well as an enormous hand-colored ukiyo-e painting. This unique cultural aesthetic that flourished over more than 250 years of peace leaves a lasting impression.
