Rakusuitei Museum and Gardens

An elegant mix of art and nature
This elegant museum ushers you into the private world of the former home of a wealthy silk merchant. Named “Rakusuitei” house (meaning “enjoy the vivid green”) by a famous visiting Buddhist priest, the classic Japanese architecture, fine wood craftsmanship, long open verandas, and lavish Japanese garden draw nature into the residence and provide an ideal setting for exhibitions of exquisite Japanese art. Not to be missed.
