Morikami’s collections focus on objects that help generate an understanding of the culture of Japan, particularly the period during which the Yamato colonists and the museum’s namesake, George Morikami, lived: the mid-19th to late-20th centuries. Central to the collections are Japanese articles of daily life, dating from the Meiji Period (1868 – 1912) to the present, including fine art and folk art from the same and earlier periods.

Many of these objects are now accessible online, using our collections gallery, made possible by funding from the Freeman Foundation. Please visit often and explore our collections, as we continue to add more objects.
