(TOP image) "Women with haniwa pots and women with cups" Kofun period 5th-6th centuries Okada Museum of Art

In this exhibition, approximately 80 pieces of ancient pottery and bronze ware from Japan and China will be exhibited in one hall, and at the same time, the first exhibition of Persian pottery developed through exchanges with China. Jomon pottery, born more than 10,000 years ago, was decorated with a variety of techniques, including the use of rope patterns, pasting clay strings and openwork. There you can find beauty beyond the uses of cooking and storage. It is thought that unique clay figurines were created in the same era and prayed for prosperity and fertility. In contrast to the clay figurines, the haniwa, which has a simple expression, was created in the Kofun period (5th-6th centuries) and was placed on top of the tomb to reproduce the ritual. On the other hand, bronze ware from ancient China (around the 17th to 3rd centuries BC) is mainly used as a ritual to worship the spirits of its ancestors, and its profound and tense forms and detailed patterns are highlights.

The museum has a corner to compare Japanese and Chinese works, which is a unique attempt to store a wide range of Oriental art. Let's compare the Jomon pottery and bronze ware, the haniwa and the terracotta (Chinese doll "higata" burial goods) while paying attention to the shapes and patterns. A variety of DOKI earthenware that will make you feel eternal! Please feel

At the same time, you can see about 400 paintings and paintings such as Ito Jakuchu in the permanent exhibition.

    The Okada Museum of Art opened in Hakone and Kowakudani in October 2013. On the 5th floor, with an exhibition area of about 5,000 square meters, the largest exhibition hall in Hakone boasts one of the largest in the hall, with approximately 450 pieces of art such as ceramics and paintings from Japan and the East being constantly displayed. The art museum was conceived to protect the fine arts inherited in Japan, share the pleasure of encountering beauty, and pass it on to the next generation. Decorating the front of the museum is a large mural "Kaze-Toki" (2013), a 12-meter-long and 30-meter-wide mural painted by contemporary Japanese painter Etaro Fukui. After viewing, you can enjoy a footbath café with 100% sourced water and a stroll through the garden.
