A recent exhibition here featured correspondence by famous Japanese figures from various periods in history. For example: Sukenga Hino (1119-1195) (Heian), Yasutoki Hojo (1183-1241) (Kamakura), and even tea-ceremony icon, Sen no Rikyu (1522-1591)(Muromachi). The Edo period was represented by artist extraordinaire Koetsu Honami (1558-1637), Emperor Reigen (1654-1732) and Prince Yukihito Arisugawa (1656-1699). The permanent collection at this museum includes screen painting, sculptures, bronzes and lacquer, all assembled below ground level in a contemporary high-rise building.
