The Kyoto Seishu Netsuke Art Museum is located in Mibu, which used to be the western end of the capital of Kyoto during the Middle Ages. The area is also known for being home to the Mibu Goshi, who were samurai warriors that became farmers during the Edo period (1603-1867). The museum building is believed to have been built as the residence of the Kanzaki Family, one of the Mibu Goshi, in 1820. The residence of the Kanzaki Family was designated by Kyoto City as a tangible cultural property. We intend to contribute toward the development of culture by preserving this historic architecture and imparting the cultural value to posterity.
