In this exhibition, about 80 pieces of ancient ceramics and bronze ware from Japan and China will be exhibited in one place, and at the same time, the Persian pottery developed in exchange with China will be unveiled for the first time. Jomon pottery, which was created more than 10,000 years ago, was decorated with various methods such as pasting patterns, pasting clay strings, and openwork. You can find beauty that goes beyond the purpose of cooking and storing. It is believed that the unique clay figurines were also made in the same period and prayed for prosperity of the descendants and for good harvest. Haniwa, a person whose simple expression is attractive in contrast to the clay figurines, was created during the Kofun period (5th-6th centuries) and was placed on top of the tombs to recreate the ritual. On the other hand, Bronze ware from ancient China (17th century BC to 3rd century BC) is mainly used as a ritual instrument that enshrines the spirits of its ancestors.

This time, as an attempt unique to the museum that houses a wide range of Oriental art, there is also a corner where you can compare works from Japan and China. While paying attention to the shapes and patterns, let's compare Jomon pottery and bronze ware, Haniwa and Osa (the burial goods of the Chinese puppet, Hitata). Various DOKI earthenwares that you can feel when you are in eternity! Please feel

In addition, in the permanent exhibition, you can see about 400 items including paintings and ceramics such as Ito Jakuchu. Don't miss the "Jakuchu Room" corner, where the works of Jakuchu Ito, which has been very popular in recent years, are displayed, and the "Congratulations for the prosperity and peace of Reiwa" corner.

The Okada Museum of Art was opened in October 2013 in Hakone and Kowakidani. On the 5th floor, with an exhibition area of approximately 5,000 m2, the largest indoor exhibition area in Hakone is the vast hall, where approximately 450 works of art such as Japanese and oriental porcelain and paintings are constantly displayed. The museum was conceived with the desire to protect the art that has been passed down in Japan, share the joy of meeting beauty, and pass it on to the next generation. The front of the museum is decorated with a modern mural painter, Etaro Fukui, with a 12 m long and 30 m wide mural painting of the wind god Raijin "Kaze Toki" (2013). After viewing, you can enjoy a footbath cafe with a 100% free-flowing source and a walk in the garden.
