About Nomura Art Museum
Nomura Securities, a representative securities company in Japan, opened this museum as a result of its second generation Nomura Tokushichi’s collection. He was well known as a leading businessman of the modern era in Japan but was also a tea master and learned about Noh traditional performance arts, thus he was not only a businessman but a man of rich cultural sensibility.
For that reason the Nomura museum holds various tea ceremony tools and Noh masks and costumes as its primary theme. It holds about 1500 items including 7 important cultural properties and 9 pieces of designated important artwork.
It is open twice a year from March to June and from September to early December. This perfectly overlaps with the times for cherry blossoms and autumn leaves, and it is just nearby to Nanzen-ji and Eikan-do as well as the Philosopher’s Walk, and so you can come and visit in when you’re sightseeing in the area.
Admissions are accepted until 30 minutes before closing.
From JR Kyoto Station (京都駅) take the city bus "Iwakura" (岩倉) and get off at the Nanzen-Eikan-do stop (南禅寺・永観堂道). 5 minute walk to the side of the mountain from there. By subway you can walk from the Tozai line’s Keage Station (蹴上駅) about 10 minutes.
