Regarded as one of Japan’s great modern painters, Taikan Yokoyama (1868-1958) was born at the beginning of the Meiji restoration and lived through 89 years of change. Having studied under Tenshin Okakura, he boldly incorporated influences from Western art, clearing the way for a new stream of Nihonga painting. Commemorating 150 years since Yokoyama's birth, the Yamatane Museum – founded by the painter's associate Taneji Yamazaki – pulls out all the greatest hits from its vast collection, displaying around 40 of the modernist pioneer's finest works. Anyone wearing a kimono gets a ¥200 discount on the ticket price.
