The Toguri Museum of Art opened on November 21, 1987, for the permanent preservation and public display of artwork centering on porcelain collected over many years by founder Tohru Toguri. The museum stands in the Shoto district of Shibuya on land formerly owned by the Nabeshima clan, based in Kyushu and famous for the production of porcelain ware.
Housing a collection of as many as 7,000 works of Bizen porcelain such as Imari and Nabeshima ware, oriental pottery from China and Korea, and antique ware, the museum serves as one of the few facilities in Japan dedicated to porcelain. It organizes themed feature exhibitions four times each year.
