Tenshin Memorial Museum of Art

Northern Ibaraki


The Tenshin Memorial Museum of Art is located in picturesque Izura. The area is renowned for its beautiful winding coastline, cliffs, and pine forests. It has been recognized as one of the top 100 beaches in Japan. Moreover, the sound of the waves at Izura was selected for a project recording Japan's 100 most captivating soundscapes.
The artist Tenshin Okakura was one of the pioneers of modern art in Japan during the Meiji Period (1868–1912). He later founded The Japan Art Institute (Nihon Bijutsuin). In 1906, the institute moved from Izura to Tokyo's Ueno district, where Tenshin Okakura worked alongside other artists, including Taikan Yokoyama.
The Tenshin Memorial Museum of Art was established on November 8, 1997. The facility commemorates his achievements and displays works by him and his contemporaries.
