A museum were you can enjoy the modern works painted by the illustrators such as Takabatake Kasho who swept through the art publication world.
The Yayoi museum was founded on June 1984 by the lawyer Takumi Kano. Inside the building is a collection of a total of 27,000 works including circa 3,000 works of Takabatake Kasho who swept through the art publication world from the late Meiji period (1868 - 1912) to the postwar era and the works and material other illustrators who were active around the same time. The theme of the permanent exhibition room on the 3rd floor is periodically changed with 50 different works of Takabatake. In the exhibition rooms at the first and the second floors, exhibitions under the publicational art theme like illustrations, magazines, manga and magazine appendices of the illustrators who were active in the late Meiji period to the postwar period are shown. The ”Takehisa Yumeji Museum” is also in the same building so the fact that you can enjoy two museums in one makes it very appealing. It is a 7 minute walk from either Exit 1 of ”Nezu” Station of the Tokyo Metro Chiyoda Line, or Exit 1 of ”Todaimae” Station of the Tokyo Metro Namboku Line.
