The Sato Sakura Museum of Art specializes in contemporary Niohonga. Niohonga is Japanese-style painting executed in traditional Japanese techniques and materials. The museum opened in October 2006, in Koriyama City, Fukushima. March 2012 saw the opening of a satellite museum in Nakameguro, Tokyo. Both Koriyama and Tokyo museums are open to the public exhibiting selected works from the Sato collection. The Exhibitions correspond to prescribed themes throughout the year. The collection is comprised of Japanese Niohonga artists born in the Showa period (1926~1989). We hope the Museum will provide an opportunity for visitors to appreciate contemporary Niohonga paintings and help support Niohonga artists. We endeavour to discover and nurture new talent in the future.

Sato Sakura Museum of Art annually holds four to five exhibitions selected from its collection according to different themes, with approximately 40 paintings in the total of four gallery spaces. The careful design allows visitors to enjoy the delicate works of Nihonga in an intimate space. We also have a permanent exhibition room with approximately 10 large-scale works including screen paintings of cherry blossoms.
