【Plan10】Guided Tour of Japan’s First Museum Dedicated to Realist Paintings


Looks like a real photo!
In the simple yet elegant atmosphere of the galleries, you can enjoy realist paintings with a wide variety of concepts.


Museum talks that expand appreciation of paintings are a must-hear!

Come enjoy refined autumn moments admiring art and relaxing in a café at the Hoki Museum!

For those who want to enjoy both art and good food in the autumn, we recommend this tour of the Hoki Museum. Take a guided tour around the unique building, which has received multiple awards such as the Japan Institute of Architects Grand Prix, and view approximately 150 realist paintings while listening to anecdotes of the painting process and ways to enjoy the artwork. After the tour of the exhibition hall, you will proceed to the café inside the museum, where you will find a variety of designer chairs. Enjoy a relaxed and pleasant tea time with a small plate of Chiba snacks in a refined space.
