The MOA Museum of Art (エムオーエー美術館, MOA Bijūtsukan) is a private museum in the city of Atami, Japan.

History[edit]

It was established in 1982 by the Mokichi Okada Association (MOA) to house the art collection of their founder, multimillionaire and religious leader Mokichi Okada (1882–1955).

Collection[edit]

It has collections of classical paintings, scrolls, sculptures, porcelain and lacquerwork from China and Japan. Major exhibits include National Treasures such as the Edo-period Red and White Ume Blossoms by Ogata Kōrin, and the tea-leaf jar with a design of wisteria by Ninsei.

It also has a reconstruction of the 16th century Golden Tea Room, which was made under the supervision of the architect Sutemi Horiguchi, an expert of sukiya architecture.[1]
