● Zen Buddhist Art

In addition to the humorous paintings of Zen monks, Hakuin Ekaku, Sengai Gibon, and disciples of Hakuin, such as Torei Enji, this MEGURU offers a vast collection of calligraphy, and other works that convey Zen teachings.

● Bijin-ga
Bijin-ga began in the Edo period through the emergence of ukiyo-e. Initially, these consisted of courtesan paintings, but they have grown to depict the beauty of women in daily life. From the works of female painters, such as Uemura Shoen, who modernized Bijin-ga by adapting Maruyama school aesthetics, to Ito Shinsui, who followed the Utagawa ukiyo-e style, this MEGURU offers various paintings mainly from the Meiji era onwards.

● Otomaru Kodo
The Living National Treasure lacquer artist was born in 1898 in Takamatsu, Kagawa, and studied Sanuki carving under Ishii Keido. He studied lacquer engraving and created various colored lacquerware. Expanding the scope of lacquer art, he developed his own distinct style while maintaining the use of traditional techniques.

Hayashi Kiichiro
A western-style painter who dedicated his life to painting old homes with thatched roofs. "One Hundred Views of Lost Private Houses" covers 30 years' worth of trips made nationwide. With elegance and realism, his style rediscovers the fast-disappearing Japanese landscape.
