Hatakeyama Memorial Museum of Fine Art 畠山記念館

2-20-12 Shirokanedai Minato-ku Tokyo

Museum promoting and preserving East Asian fine art relating to tea

If you're a fan of vibrant green matcha, you will love the Hatakeyama Memorial Museum of Fine Art. This museum is located a few minutes' walk from Takanawadai Station in central Tokyo and is home to old works of East Asian art with special emphasis on those related to tea.

What began as a non-profit in 1964, the Hatakeyama Memorial Museum of Fine Art displays art objects from Japan, China and Korea. Here you can see calligraphy, lacquerware, ceramics and Noh theater costumes. Many of the pieces belonged to Issey Hatakeyama, the founder of the museum and Ebara Corporation. About 40 to 50 pieces are shown at a time, and the pieces on display change seasonally.
