Experience Japanese Culture
The Museum offers a selection of cultural programs in the Kōrin’s Residence situated in the Tea Garden.
How would you like to try on a kimono and step out into the garden or browse through the museum galleries?
Or you can learn the traditional chanoyu tea-making and ikebana flower arranging in a relaxed setting inside the house of a world-renowned painter and the creator of the Red and White Plum Blossoms screen, Ogata Kōrin! This is a house designed by the artist himself for his domicile, and once stood in Shinmachi, Kyoto, transferred and restored on the museum ground.
