- Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art reopened in the spring of 2020 as a new symbol of Okazaki.
- The main building was established in 1933 to commemorate the ascension of Emperor Hirohito to the throne. With its imperial crown style architecture, the building has a good balance of Western and Japanese qualities. It also possesses valuable architectural features such as the art deco-stained glass windows and tiled hallways. Located up the stairs from the entrance is the central hall with its 16-meter-high ceiling. It is highly recommended to see the hall and also the Japanese garden found just beyond there.
- Responsible for the modern updates to this oldest public museum architecture in Japan is the architect and museum director Jun Aoki and Tezz Nishizawa. The glass façade on the first underground floor that houses the café and museum shop is one of the main new features of the building. In July, the museum plans to host the travelling Avengers exhibition.
