Located 3 minutes walk from Roppongi-itchome Station is Sen-Oku Hakuko Kan Museum . Established in 2002, this museum exhibits and preserves art objects collected by the Sumitomo family. Hence it is also called the Sumitomo Collection. The Collection features over 3000 art objects, including Chinese and Japanese calligraphic works and paintings, western-style paintings, modern ceramics, and Japanese tea utensils.

Okura Shukokan Museum of Fine Arts

Okura Shukokan Museum of Fine Arts is located in a beautiful old Japanese style building directly across from Okura Hotel, just 5 minutes walk from Roppongi-itchome Station. The collection in the museum was started by Kihachiro Okura, a collector of Buddhist art work, who in 1917 established this museum to display his treasures. His son, Baron Kishichiro Okura (founder of Okura Hotel) continued with his fatherâ€ôs tradition and added more items to the collection over the years. Today the museum houses some 2,000 items and 35,000 volumes, some of which are registered National Treasures, Important Cultural Objects, and Important Art Objects.
