The Shizuoka City Museum of Art is located in Aoi Tower. Its collection reflects its mission to “create and communicate an energetic art and culture of the people and the local region.” This means the pieces are primarily a reflection of the Edo period (1603 – 1868), an era that defined Shizuoka’s role in Japanese history. Another gallery to consider visiting – especially if you like Auguste Rodin – is the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art. The exhibit includes 32 of the famous French sculptor’s work. A third option is the Tokaido Hiroshige Museum of Art featuring 1,400 woodblock prints.
