The museum showcases a collection of Japanese and Asian art assembled over the course of three centuries by the Mitsui family, with paintings, Noh masks, costumes and textiles, furniture, tea ceremony utensils, incense vessels and works of calligraphy as well as 130,000 postage stamps. Exhibits include a full-size, detailed replica of the interior of a celebrated tea-ceremony room. (Note that the museum is closed for weeks at a time between exhibitions, so check their website to confirm that they're open.)
