Tsukamoto Art Museum is one of the few art museums in Japan that specialize in Japanese katana swords.
It was established on the basis of the collection of Tsukamoto Sozan, a businessman who hailed from Sakura.
It was first opened in Tokyo’s Ginza district with the name of Japanese Sword Art Museum in 1965. It later moved to the city of Chiba and the name was changed to Tsukamoto Art Museum. It moved again in 1983 to its founder’s home town of Sakura, when it became an incorporated foundation.
Approximately 20 items are exhibited on a three-month rotation, selected from the 400 swords and 250 pieces of fittings and scabbards.
With free admission, anyone is welcome to visit. The Museum also responds to requests for valuations and other advice about Japanese swords.
