Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art
The Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art sits perched on the Carmel Mountain just minutes away from the centrally-located hotels. The museum was established in 1959 by Felix Tikotin and the then-mayor Aba Hushi and is a branch of the Haifa Museum. The museum is totally dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of Japanese art relics and is the only one in the world that exhibits Japanese art and culture outside of Japan. Almost all kinds of Japanese art and crafts are displayed and there is also a library of approximately three-thousand books. There are between ten and twelve exhibitions on show at one time which change each season. Sliding doors, partitions made of wood and paper and other such Japanese features enhance the displays of Japanese scrolls, screens, pottery, porcelain, lacquer, metalwork, paintings and fresh-flower arrangements.

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
One thought on “Tikotin Museum of Japanese Art”
What a gem!
As a self-confessed Japanophile, this museum is a delight- it is very rare to find such museums outside of Japan and who would have thought of all places in Israel?! In any case, it was a truly fascinating experience and brought back fond memories of my visit to Japan…a little piece of Japan in the Middle East!
