The Asakura Museum of Sculpture was once Fumio Asakura's residence. As a leading sculptor through Meiji (1868-1912), Taisho (1912-26) and Showa (1926-89) eras, Asakura (1883-1964) had collected countless bronze items, paintings, pottery, and built an extensive library and beautiful gardens at his residence. Not surprisingly, the residence itself is now a national cultural property.
Asakura used his house as a studio when he was living. The residence survived Pacific War, but the studio space has been made more Westernized after modern renovations. The residential space, though, remains in Japanese style.
