Kodansha Noma Memorial Museum

Kodansha Noma Memorial Museum (講談社野間記念館 Kōdansha noma kinenkan?) is located in Bunkyo, Tokyo, Japan. Its collection includes fine Japanese art objects.

The museum was opened in April 2000, in order to commemorate the 90th anniversary of the founding of Japan's largest publishing company, Kodansha Publishing Company. It was the residence of the former Kodansha president Sawako Noma, the grand daughter of its founder, Seiji Noma. One of the museum's exhibits is the Noma Japanese Art Collection, art objects collected by Seiji Noma in the early part of the 20th century. Featured artists include Kawai Gyokudō, Uemura Shōen, Kiyokata Kaburagi, and more. The Museum also displays the Publication Culture Collection, which presents valuable cultural treasures that have been collected from the Meiji Era to the Heisei Era.
