The Aoki Collection is the heart of this museum. Comprised of art works and reference materials from the late Edo period to the Showa period, gathered together by Tochigi Prefecture entrepreneur Aoki Tosaku, the collection includes Japanese paintings by local artists such as Arai Kanpo, Kobori Tomone, and Johoji Koyo, as well as ukiyo-e and prints by Ogata Gekko, Kubota Beisen, and Yoshida Hiroshi. This exhibition focuses on modern works from the Aoki Collection that are not well known.
