The Naritasan Museum of Calligraphy is a comprehensive museum of calligraphy.
The museum has a collection of over 6,000 pieces, ranging from delicate old brush strokes and ancient manuscripts dating back to the Heian and Nara periods to powerful modern masterpieces. Each exhibition features a different theme, conveying the wide-ranging appeal of calligraphy.
In addition, the museum's stately exterior and high-ceilinged, spacious space are inspired by a temple hall. The only permanent display is the original rubbing "Ki Taishan" which is 13 meters in length and has been handwritten by Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty China. Please feel the power of the rubbing.
Naritasan Park, located behind the main hall, is a huge garden of more than 160,000 square meters of lush greenery. In the park, there are stone monuments to famous people such as Katsu Kaishu, Matsuo Basho, and Takahama Kyoshi, as well as seasonal scenery such as plum blossoms, cherry blossoms, wisteria, chrysanthemums, autumn leaves, fresh green leaves, and snow, so on. The Floating Hall (a hall floating on a pond), the Suikinkutsu (water sounds cave), and the "Brush Spirit" on a brush mound are also popular.
Please also enjoy a visit to Narita-san and a stroll in the park.
