Mori Shusui Museum of Art showcases works of fine art collected by Lead Chemical Co., Ltd. founded by Masao Mori.
“Shusui” means clear autumn water, which represents the clean, well honed nature of the Japanese sword. This name was selected because the museum has one of the greatest Japanese sword collections in the nation, and the museum’s logo symbolizes its signature “sword.”
Lead Chemical Co., Ltd. houses many Japanese swords and other nationally important cultural properties and art treasures such as paintings, Japanese pottery and calligraphy, including masterpieces of representative painters of Japanese modern art history such as Taikan Yokoyama and Gyokudo Kawai.
Historically, Toyama prefecture (Ecchu Province) was an important center of sword production, and home to famous sword smiths such as Norishige (a senior apprentice of Masamune), and Gou no Yoshihiro. The Uda Ha School of Sword Making actively produced swords during the Muromachi period. This museum’s collection of swords is designed to captivate your eyes and minds.
