Tokugawa Art Museum Reviews
第1展示室の武具・刀剣は見応えがあります。戦国時代ではなく、江戸時代のもので細部まで宝飾が施され分家とはいえ将軍家の威厳を感じます。 more »The armor and swords in the first exhibition room are worth seeing. It is not the Sengoku period, but the Edo period and the details are decorated with jewelry, and i feel the dignity of the shogunfamily even though it is a branch house.
仕事で名古屋に来たときに伺いました。アクセスはけして良くない場所だと思います。源氏物語絵巻がみたくて伺いましたが、複製の、さらにごく一部のみの展示でした。現物が見たいかたは下調べをして、展示期間中でないとみられないようです(涙) more »I visited nagoya on business. I think that access is a bad place. I visited to see the genji monogatari picture scroll, but it was an exhibition of only a small part of the reproduction. If you want to see the actual thing, do a survey and it will not be seen during the exhibition period (tears)
The Art museum which has permanent exhibits of the tools of the Owari Tokugawa feudal lords, such as Japanese swords and armour, tea ceremony utensils, and Noh costumes. Be sure not to miss the limited-time displays of the Tale of Genji picture scrolls (designated a National Treasure), and the China dolls and Doll Festival. Entry to the museum is 1.400 Yen. To get there take the sightseeing tour bus or the closest metro station is Morishita Station. (Meitetsu-Seto Line)
Was given an impromptu personal 2 hour tour of the whole building. Amazing experience would recommend if you want to learn about how the Samurai and the Royal family lived. Goes into great depth on things like how they drank tea and what kinds of tea and things like incense and how it contributed to the tale of genji. Super cool.
