The Tokugawa Art Museum & Tokugawaen

The Tokugawa Art Museum has permanent exhibits of the tools of the Owari Tokugawa feudal lords, such as Japanese swords and armor, tea ceremony utensils, and Noh cos-tumes. Be sure not to miss the limited-time displays of the Tale of Genji picture scrolls (designated a National Treasure), and the hina dolls and Doll Festival furnistings of the Owari Tokugawa clan. The Hosa Library is centered around the Owari Tokugawa clan's former col-lection of books, housing and displaying approximately 110,000 of Japan and China's old masterworks.
Tokugawaen is a Japanese garden with walkways winding around a central pond symbolizing the ocean. The waterfall and steams utilize the differences in elevation to create an enjoyable, dynamic landscape. The park was once a residence of the old samurai manor can still be seen in the black gate at the en-trance. Mid- to late April is the best time to view peonies; June for Japanese iries, and late November for autumn leaves.
