The Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art is an art museum in Sakura, Japan, designed by Ichiro Ebihara. The museum opened in 1990 and its collection now contains more than 1000 works collected by the Japanese resin and ink manufacturer DIC Corporation. The project was largely the brainchild of Katsumi Kawamura, the former president of DIC, founder and first director of the museum, who had been collecting art since the 1970s. The Kawamura Memorial Museum contains artwork by a wide selection of American, European and Japanese artists, including special exhibitions of the works of Mark Rothko and Frank Stella.

Around the museum, a 30 hectare park with over 200 kinds of trees, 500 kinds of plants and inhabited by many wild birds and insects invites for walking and enjoying nature.

  • Received free tickets, so I went for the first time. Went to the Museum several times when you travel abroad, Japan Museum of art was very stuffy. Make abroad and I watch in the guide just aloud me to explain, to relax a little bit more, you can watch, but really like to use the tiring!-and thought. Before going to the Museum of foreign art appreciation in the Art Museum in Japan take for granted I thought I could and was disappointed.

  • Sakura and also as the boundary and the yachimata in located in the outskirts of Sakura city. The open or temporary exhibitions and permanent to Monet's water lilies from famous paintings in my water lilies by Monet likes best is a collection of Monet's water lilies. Memorable date with my wife for the first time anywhere, but most still remains at that time. There are a lot of masters such as Picasso and Chagall paintings, is also a Japanese-style paintings on display. Notable among them is Roscoe's room? Changes, met here in Roscoe, 4-sided one-room wall is completely mural in evaluation. Sitting on the couch here, view is great.

  • A remote museum of art with also a nice garden. Free shuttle bus. Good for a little trip outside Tokyo and having a picnic in the park
  • A museum with great collections and a beautiful garden. While the museum itself is relatively small, they invested quite a bit in creating and maintaining a large garden which features different types of plants to be enjoyed all year long.
  • This is a place to relax - a rare combination of art and nature. While the museum is quite famous for its art collection, they also spent a lot of time (and money) in creating a beautiful park. If they only would consider teaching art. That would earn them a 6th star.
  • great Rothko room, excellent collection on lovely grounds
  • Fantastic museum and beautiful grounds!
