The Takehisa Yumeji Museum is a museum is dedicated to the work and life of Yumeji Takehisa (1884-1934), a leading Japanese painter who rose to fame during the Taisho era. Happening between 1912-1926, the Taisho era was a period in Japan’s history when western and local culture started to blend.
Takehisa was most famous for this representation of beautiful women, known in Japanese as bijin-ga. In total the museum houses over 3,000 works by the artist. Rotating exhibitions are held every three months displaying carefully selected works from the gallery’s collection. The museum is also home to Yumeji Cafe Minatoya, a café with an impressive view of museum’s gardens.
