The Gifu Collection of Modern Arts is one of the few art museums to feature the works of the artist Toko Shinoda (b. 1913). The building was constructed on the grounds of the Seki Garden Factory of Nabeya Bi-Tech Kaisha in 1992 and was awarded the Nikkei New Office Promotion Award (International Trade and Industry Minister’s Prize) in 1993. The approach to the museum features a cascade and pool, their shapes fitting harmoniously into the lush greenery of the surrounding setting.
In addition to the permanent exhibits of the works of Toko Shinoda, the museum holds special exhibitions presenting the work of up-and-coming modern artists and holds concerts and other events that contribute to the enrichment of cultural activities in the Gifu prefecture city of Seki and environs.
