The Artizon Museum, formerly the Bridgestone Museum of Art, was established by Ishibashi Shojiro, the founder of the Bridgestone Corporation (the kanji for “ishi” means stone and “bashi” means bridge), the tire manufacturer. The Ishibashi Foundation has built on Ishibashi’s personal collection over the years and today the museum is an eclectic mix 2,600 pieces of Japanese, European, and American.
