This exhibition is divided into the first half: spring-summer edition and the second half: autumn-winter edition, and about 100 paintings, ceramics, lacquering and other crafts based on the nature and features of each season are exhibited. I would like to introduce how it has been expressed.
Please pay attention to the collections that represent the museum, such as Ito Jakuchu, Tanaka Isson, and Utamaro Kitagawa.
Autumn / Winter Edition-Korin, Kamaru, Harukusa, etc.-
In the second half, we will exhibit motifs that symbolize autumn such as autumn leaves and chrysanthemums, as well as winter-themed works such as snow scenes.
Autumn was the most beloved season in Japanese poetry, painting and crafts. In this exhibition, the large white chrysanthemums, the brothers of Korin Ogata and Kenzan, who simplified the brightly colored autumn leaves and beautifully represented them with clear colors and composition, and the pretty autumn grass that blooms in the autumn field, are exhibited using high-quality pigments. Rinpa's excellent products are lined up, including well-drawn Sakai Hoitsu and Suzuki Kiitsu.
In his winter-themed work, he finds beauty in the white snow, and superimposes cold-tolerant flora and fauna on a noble person for spring.
You can read the image of winter that people at that time had, such as putting expectations.

Outline of the event
Okada Museum of Art
The Okada Museum of Art opened in October 2013 in Kowakudani, Hakone. With a total of 5 floors and an exhibition area of about 5,000 m2, the vast hall boasts the largest indoor exhibition area in Hakone, and about 450 works of art such as Japanese and Oriental ceramics and paintings are always on display. The museum was conceived with the desire to carefully protect the works of art that have been passed down in Japan, share the joy of encountering beauty, and pass it on to the next generation. The front of the museum is decorated with the large mural "Kaze Toki" (2013) by the contemporary Japanese painter Kotaro Fukui, who is 12 meters long and 30 meters wide. After viewing, you can enjoy a footbath cafe that flows 100% from the source and a walk in the garden.About the facility Access
