A private museum in Setagaya Ward founded in 1960 by Goto Keita (1882-1959), the late chairman of the Tokyu Corporation. The museum holds the Japanese and East Asian art works that Goto collected over his lifetime. An illustrated handscroll of The Tales of Genji, sometimes referred to as the world’s first novel, is among one of the more notable items. The work is a designated National Treasure but is only available for public viewing in the first week of May each year.
