The Adachi Museum of Art was based on the private collection of Zenko Adachi. Adachi collected Japanese paintings, ceramics and scrolls. Adachi himself was an aficionado of Japanese gardens and collected each pine tree and each stone for the garden himself from around Japan. In this way he created a beautiful garden filled with his own vision and passion. Adachi believed that Japanese gardens were "as beautiful as pictures” and even framed one of the gardens in one of the museums rooms as if it is a painting itself. Adachi Museum Garden has been selected as the best garden in Japan year after year since 2003, by the Journal of Japanese Gardens Shisai Project.
