Otaru Art Base
The Otaru Art Base is a complex of three museums where history and art mingle together.
The museums, repurposed from historical structures built during the early 20th century, are: the Stained Glass Museum, the Former Mitsui Bank Otaru Branch, and the Nitori Museum of Art. The museums mainly hold and display modern and contemporary Japanese paintings, Western paintings, sculptures, prints, glassworks, and stained glass.
