The collection of the Shusui Museum of Art centers on Japanese works of art from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Focusing on these pieces, the museum introduces the unique and highly spiritual traditional art of Japan, which has been cultivated over the centuries.

Japanese Swords and Accessories

Etchu Province, in modern-day Toyama Prefecture, was once an important center of swordmaking, producing outstanding swordmakers. These included Norishige, said to have been a senior fellow apprentice of Masamune, and Go no Yoshihiro, who was considered one of Japan’s three greatest swordsmiths according to the Tokugawa shogunate’s sword records. Swordmakers of the Uda School were also active in this area during the Muromachi period (1336–1573). The items on display from the museum’s collection include swords made by swordmakers from Etchu Province, to help demonstrate what makes these swords so special.
