The Ito Cultural Foundation was established in 1981 according to the wishes of Denzo Ito, the founder of Itoham Foods. Itoham Foods' headquarters is in Nishinomiya, Hyogo Prefecture, and the foundation was set up near Himeji to help Hyogo museums and cultural facilities offer the public better access to high-quality art. As of March this year, the foundation has donated approximately 700 artworks and some 4,000 books to the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art.

This exhibition showcases a selection of works from the donated collection, most notably a number of modern paintings and some sketches by Narashige Koide and Sotaro Yasui; till July 3.
