Tokugawa Art Museum 徳川美術館

Discovering the daimyo

While in Nagoya, be sure to visit Tokugawa Art Museum, located in the north-east of the city. You'll discover authentic pieces, from famous katana and kimono to ancient illustrated scrolls...

However, the scrolls are extremely fragile, so they are not permanently on display to the public. Visitors can only see them a few days a year.

The permanent exhibition is presented in a beautiful historical reproduction of the living quarters of the Owari daimyo, which allows visitors to better understand the uses of the different objects on display, seeing them, for example, in a tea house or Noh theater where they would have originally appeared.
