Greetings

We have continued to carry out our work surrounded by rich natural beauty, in our location nestled against the Hotaka mountain range with its ever-changing expressions.

The year 2000, when we celebrated the 30th anniversary of our founding, was a new departure point as we aimed for a higher level of creativity and refinement in our work befitting the 21st century. In our pursuit of a higher order of precision and the technologies to that end, a strong will and rich sensitivity are essential. We wanted to build a place where we can go in search of such traits. Out of that wish came the birth of IIDA KAN.

The IIDA KAN gallery houses a permanent exhibit of the works of Yoshikuni Iida.

Known as an innovative sculptor representative of post-war Japan, and further as a unique poet and an art critic with a discerning eye, Iida's starting point as an artist are his oil paintings. Highlighting the gallery's holdings and exhibits are Iida's youthful paintings from the 1950s and his SCREEN-CANYON, a 1983 sculpture.

We hope the exhibits at IIDA KAN will enable us to share the strong will and sensitivity behind Iida's creativity with many people.
