Shusui Museum of Art 秋水美術館

One of the few collections of Japanese sabers in the whole country!

This museum features art pieces collected by Lead Chemical (President: Masao Mori). Its Japanese saber collection is one of the few in Japan, and Shusui, the museum's name (lit. autumn water), means a saber so masterfully crafted that there is no cloudiness on the blade. In addition to sabers designated as Important Cultural Properties and Important Art Pieces, the museum also houses works by masters of Japanese painting such as Yokoyama Taikan and Kawai Gyokudo, as well as calligraphy and pottery from Japan and China.
Furthermore, Toyama Prefecture (Etchu Province) was the home of Norishige, a senior pupil to Masamune (the greatest saber smith in Japan) and Go no Yoshihiro, known as one of the 3 Great saber smiths of Japan. It was also the site of saber production in the Uda style or sabers in the Muromachi period (1336-1573). This museum's collection also features works from Etchu Province and showcases their charms to the visitors.
