Kanazawa Bunko金沢文庫

Kanazawa Bunko (金沢文庫) is a private museum located in Kanazawa Ward, Yokohama, Japan. This museum features a private collection of traditional Japanese and Chinese art objects, which is made accessible to the general public. The Kanazawa Bunko was originally a library, which it still is today primarily, but its collection also includes Japanese and Chinese art objects. It was one of the two most important centers of learning in medieval Japan, with Ashikaga Gakkō being the other. The library was opened in 1275 by Hōjō Sanetoki (1224–76), a grandson of Hōjō Yoshitoki, second regent of the Kamakura shogunate.
