History

The Eisei-Bunko (Eisei Archive) is a collection of important art objects acquired and passed down in the Hosokawa family, a daimyo of 540 thousand-goku (one of the five top daimyos) in Higo, the present day Kumamoto in Kyushu. The collection has been in existence since the Nanboku-chō Era or the 14th century and is noted for possessing close to 112 thousands objects.

In 1950, the archive was turned into a foundation and a public museum was opened in 1973. Currently the display at the museum is rearranged three times a year at which occasion special events are organized for its members.
