TOHAKU CHAKAN

The Okyokan is a valuable Japanese house that is not usually open to the public. It was built in 1742 as the shoin (study room) of the Meigenin Temple, which was located in the outskirts of Nagoya City. Later, it was moved to the residence of Mr. Takashi Masuda (Donno) located in Shinagawa, Tokyo, who was the first president of Mitsui & Co. as well as a famous tea master. In 1933, the Okyokan was donated to the Tokyo National Museum. A variety of food, beverages, and activities have been prepared for visitors to enjoy Japanese culture while appreciating the (reproduced) fusuma paintings by Maruyama Okyo, one of the master painters of Japan’s Edo period.

We invite you to take this valuable opportunity of a limited time and pay a visit to the Okyokan.
