Art Research Center, Ritsumeikan University

This art museum opened in 2010, and is the first ever to be public museum dedicated to bonsai. It is adjacent to Omiya Bonsai Village, the so-called ‘holy land’ of bonsai. Objects from the former Takagi Bonsai Art Museum form the core of the museum’s collection, but the systematic collection and display of well-known and superior bonsai, bonsai pots, stones appreciated for their aesthetic qualities, visual artworks such as ukiyo-e that feature bonsai, as well as historical and ethnographic information related to bonsai are also a focus of the museum.
