The chilly sea winds were swirling along the street of a port town, Tadaoka Town. After driving down out of a transportation highway, I was in the middle of a township with houses, small factories, and residences. Masaki Art Museum was attached to one of those residences.

Takayuki Masaki (1895-1985) became rich with those factories and accumulated more than 1,300 objects, including three Japanese National Treasures. In 1968, he established Masaki Art Museum in Tadaoka Town, Semboku County, Osaka Prefecture, in order to exhibit his collection.

Every time I visit the museum, I am surprised at how knowledgeable the curator is, or rather I have been allured with some themes she has set up.

The museum is not so large in size, and its exhibition rooms are small and few. In addition, compared to the collections by financial conglomerates, their items are not plenty in quantity. However, the curator always presents unique and attractive themes, each of which lets visitors realize an essential aspect of East Asian cultures.

If you visit the museum, reading this preview, you might be a foreign sightseer. I guarantee you never fail to grasp just one hidden side of Japanese culture.
