Adachi Museum of Art  (足立美術館)

Adachi Zenko, a textile wholesaler from Shimane prefecture, opened the museum with its gardens in 1980.
He was then already 71 years old.
Adachi Zenko loved Japanese paintings and gardens since his youth. At the time he could afford it, he started to collect wonderful works of Japanese painters.
When he decided to open a museum, it was an easy decision where: back in his hometown to show respect and gratitude.

There are several gardens around the museum. All designed by Adachi himself.
The main garden is the Dry Landscape Garden, but we can also find a moss garden, a tea garden, the pond garden, which is the oldest garden on the grounds, and the White gravel and pine garden, a tribute to works of Yokoyama Taikan.
