Domoto-Insho Bijutsukan (Domoto Insho Art Museum) Review

An artist of tremendous versatility, Insho-san (as he was affectionately known) worked in wood, stained-glass, oils, and watercolors. The narrative nihonga-style paintings of the 20th-century artist hold wide appeal because they depict scenes from everyday life. Yet his use of classical Japanese painting's muted color palate with a more abstract, sometimes cubist, approach to figures makes his work very appealing. Near Kinagusa hill, this area is rich with nature and culture. To get here, take Bus 12, 15, 50, 51, 55, or 59 to Ritsumeikan Daigaku-mae.
