The Furukawa Art Museum is a private museum built by a wealthy entrepreneur from Aichi Prefecture. He was a collector of some 2,800 Japanese paintings, tea sets, and other works of art.

In his later years, he opened an art gallery to show his collection to the public. This lead to the establishment of the Furukawa Art Museum. His other wish was to open his Japanese mansion as a place for the general public to relax, creating the Furukawa Art Museum's branch museum, the Tamesaburo Memorial Museum.

The two museums are just a minute's walk away, so you can admire the artwork at the main museum and then take a stroll through the Japanese garden to the branch museum and enjoy a cup of tea, a rare glimpse into the elegant life of Japan's high society in the past.
