Modern Japanese-style painting by natural mineral pigments

I visited Narukawa Art Museum for the 3rd time the other day.
This museum is located near Ashinoko-lake in Hakone. The works in the exhibits are replaced several times a year and you can enjoy some fresh works every time you come here.
Because this musem is located at a little upper side hill from the best area of Hakone/Ashinoko-lake, you can see the best scenic spots in Hakone that overlooks both Mt.Fuji (If whether is fine), green moutains and Ashinoko-lale being pleasure cruise at the lake.

After I a little bit understood the importance role of natural mineral pigments for the modern Japanese paintings which are exhibited in this museum with around 4000 masterpieces, I became more impressive and felt something deep and tasteful while seeing those works.

Also, by carefully seeing those paintings closer, I could noticed that the combination of both small and large size of each color particle are mixed that create both the light color tone and deep color one.
And by over-glazing several different colors with not intentionally hiding a very little impurities of pigments inside, I might felt something subtle color tone variation.

Following are the examples of the paintings I was impressed.

By using the original painting technology of natural mineral pigments, each artist painters can express and appeal something deep feeling that are derived from traditional Japanese sensitivity of the artists.
Those masterpieces send some message to your mind and you feel something depending on each your sensitivity.

Kashima San hosted my wife, son and I on a days' tour of Tokyo. We had prearranged the itinerary to include some sites, some shopping and a museum. He met us at our hotel and talked us through the Tokyo Rail and Subway system which once you understand it is very efficient. We saw the Imperial Palace Bridges, Zozoji Temple (which is lovely), then we had time in Ginza including time in a quaint...

I thought overall Kashima did a good job. At times, I struggled with understanding his English but we worked thru it. I was a little disappointed with the magnitude of the public transportation necessary to get to sites; and, at times Kashima was unsure of the correct subway or train line to take. It was a long, full day that was enjoyable but not sure I was recommended this particular itinerary a...

My groups’ tour with Kashima was chalk-full of information about all the sites we went to and was sprinkled with some current cultural facts in between. Kashima himself was considerate of our lesser-abled group members and even helped fix mistakes we made in regards to transportation. Overall a great tour guide, would recommend. Thanks Kashima for your patience with us.

Our family of 6 had an excellent and enriching tour with Kashima-san. One of the main reasons we wanted a guide in Tokyo was to help with arranging a tour of a sumo stable in Tokyo, many of which are weary of visitors. Despite this, Kashima-san managed to book a tour of the Hakkaku sumo stable. Ahead of the visit, Kashima-san sent us a summary of sumo wrestling and what we might expect to see in t...
