Among the most important of the Japanese shogunates, the Tokugawa clan established Edo/Tokyo and, after gaining control through wars, brought peace to the country. The first shogun, Ieyasu, was born and raised in Okazaki, Aichi Prefecture, not far from Nagoya. I chose to visit the Art Museum to learn more about the clan and to see artifacts from that era. The museum does not present everything you need to know about the Tokugawas, but it gives many interesting insights about life during that time.
One example is Noh theater. The daimyo supported Noh and you can see many artifacts associated with the musical dramas. There are beautiful examples of the robes and masks used.
There are also several other permanent exhibits. I highly recommend visiting this museum.
