The MOA Museum of Art (MOAp, MOA Bijutsukan) is spectacularly located on the slopes above Atami and exhibits an impressive collection of Japanese and East Asian art. The MOA Museum of Art was opened in 1982 by the Mokichi Okada Association (MOA). Okada Mokichi was an avid art collector who lived from 1882 to 1955 and also founded the Hakone Museum of Art in Gora.

Among the exhibits in MOA are three national treasures and numerous important cultural properties, including paintings, works of calligraphy, sculptures and other crafts. The museum also features a Japanese style garden with tea houses and a noh theater.


The MOA Museum of Art is located in Atami along the northeastern coast of the Izu Peninsula. From Atami Station, take a bus bound for MOA Bijutsukan (MOAp) and get off at the final stop (10 minutes, 170 yen one way, frequent departures). Even though the museum is not served by the Yuyu Bus, the 1-day Yuyu Bus pass is valid on the buses between Atami Station and the museum.
