Sagawa Art Museum

The Sagawa Art Museum was opened on the shores of Lake Biwa, surrounded by nature and looking out on the Hiei and Hira mountains, as part of celebrations marking the 40th anniversary of the establishment of Sagawa Express Co., Ltd. Inspired by traditional Japanese styles, the construction of the monotone building and the water pools built boldly around it blend beautifully into the surrounding scenery, truly making it a “floating museum.”
The museum features exhibitions of the works of some of Japan’s greatest artists, including the painter Ikuo Hirayama, sculptor Sato Churyo, an d ceramics master Kichizaemon Raku, allowing visitors to examine the worlds of each from a variety of angles.
