In this exhibition, about 80 ancient ceramics and bronze wares from Japan and China will be exhibited in one hall, and Persian pottery developed in exchange with China will be unveiled for the first time. Jomon pottery, born more than 10,000 years ago, was decorated with a variety of techniques, such as sticking clay strings and openwork, as well as Jomon patterns. There, you can find beauty that goes beyond cooking and storage. Unique clay figurines are also made at the same time, and are thought to have prayed for prosperity and fertility. The character Minowa, which has a simple look as opposed to a clay figurine, was created in the Kofun period (5th to 6th centuries) and was placed on the old tomb to reproduce the ritual. On the other hand, bronze ware of ancient China (around the 17th to 3rd centuries BC) is mainly used as a ritual to enshrine the spirits of its ancestors, highlighting its profound and tense modeling and precise patterns.

This time, as a unique attempt to store a wide range of Oriental art, there is also a corner for comparing Japanese and Chinese works. Compare the Jomon pottery and bronze ware, Minowa and Samurai (Chinese doll <Hitogata> sub-funeral) while paying attention to the shape and pattern. A variety of DOKI earthenwares, thinking in eternal time! Please feel

In addition, there are about 400 items including permanent paintings and ceramics such as Ito Wakatsuki.

    The Okada Museum of Art opened in October 2013 in Hakone / Owakudani. Approximately 450 works of art such as ceramics and paintings from Japan and the Orient are on display at all times in the vast hall proud of Hakone's premier indoor exhibition area of 5 floors and approximately 5,000 square meters. The museum was conceived with the desire to carefully protect the artworks that have been handed down in Japan, share the joy of encountering beauty, and pass it on to the next generation. The front of the museum is a large mural of “Kaze Toki” (2013) drawn by contemporary Japanese painter Etaro Fukui, 12 meters long and 30 meters wide. After viewing, you can enjoy a 100% source-flow footbath cafe and a stroll in the garden.
