Commemorating the Museum’s 25th Anniversary—Unseen Treasures from the Collection

July 13(thu.)2023-November 26(sun.)2023

Established by Toshiko Okamoto, Taro Okamoto’s partner in both public and private life,
the Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum first opened its doors to the public in May 1998, a mere two years after Taro’s death.
Twenty-five years have now passed but although the museum is housed a small, residential-sized building,
it has won the support of numerous visitors for the way in which it conveys Taro's life and spirit to the present day.
To date, the museum has held 84 exhibitions and welcomed a total of 900,000 visitors.

Past Exhibition

‘Taro’s Sun’

July 1, 1998 - August 16, 1998

The studio, guest room and garden all remain exactly as they were in Taro’s day, retaining so much of Taro Okamoto’s power that you almost expect him to appear at any moment.


‘Meeting Taro’


Care has been taken to preserve the studio, guest room and garden just as they were when Taro Okamoto was still alive. We hope that you will be able to meet Taro in this explosive space, filled with his energy, together with artistic furniture and a forest of molds for his sculptures and monuments.
