Aoki Tosaku, a successful entrepreneur in Tochigi, collected artwork from the early 1900s to 1946. His collection was donated to Nakagawa Town and is kept in our museum. We present to you a selection of these masterpieces.

This exhibition naturally centers on Edo period Ukiyoe artist Utagawa Hiroshige’s woodblock prints. It also has calligraphy by a prominent Meiji era journalist Tokutomi Soho, Kawamura Kiyo’s oil paintings, a Kubota Beisen Japanese painting, and works by Yoshida Hiroshi and others’ prints, swords, and a variety of kinds of works. We exhibit about seventy pieces. Moreover, at this opportunity we present for the first time works by a print artist native to Tochigi, Arai Kanpo, and Makino Bokuryo and others. We invite you to enjoy firsthand various masterworks of the Aoki collection.
