In the words of the Museum:

“Art in Life” has been the theme of the Museum for 40 years since its establishment. With this on-going theme, we have zealously collected Japan’s antique arts and crafts. The Collection, distinctively different from a conventional private museum collection based on an individual collector’s sense and taste in art, is the fruit of this consistent pursuit, and makes it evident that we have faithfully maintained the primary commitment to extensively gather works of art created through people’s lives in Japan.

At present, the Collection consists of over 3,000 articles closely connected to Japanese life, as a wide and full art collection with enriched content.
