Set behind, but not directly accessible from the Daisetsu Museum, the Nakamura Memorial Museum is a museum established by industrialist Eishun Nakamura in 1966.

The museum is filled with items from Nakamura’s lifetime of collecting including tea ceremony items, scrolls, Kokutani ceramics, Kaga Maki-e lacquerware and even some works from French/Russian modernist Marc Chagall.

For ¥300, you can enjoy a cup of freshly made matcha and an anko filled wagashi sweet while admiring the garden. Before you begin, you can choose your cup from a beautiful selection of vessels. Anko (bean paste) isn’t too everyone’s taste, but it does go beautifully with the bitter matcha.
