Japan is filled with museums for nearly every subject, interest, and field of study conceivable. While many people like to make a trip to the nearest museum on Bunka no Hi, or Culture Day, which is celebrated on November 3, Japan’s museums are available to be explored and enjoyed throughout the year.
Many museums in Japan feature architectural designs that are unique works of art in their own right. These range from the massive downtown National Art Center in Tokyo and the Nagoya Science Museum, to smaller galleries located in more rural settings, such as the Itchiku Kubota Art Museum in Kanagawa Prefecture with its collection of unique kimonos, and the Tajimi Mosaic Tile Museum in Gifu Prefecture, featuring a wide selection of tiled works of art.
