The Itsuo Art Museum is named after Ichizo Kobayashi (1873-1957), an entrepreneur (founder of the Hankyu Railway) and fine arts collector. From a young age, Kobayashi had a strong interest in the arts and started collecting in his twenties. His collection included modern Japanese paintings, ceramics, and Buddhist crafts. Without realizing his dream to build a museum to house his collection, he passed away in January 1957. Later that year, his residence, "Gazoku Sanso," was remodeled and opened its doors to the public as the Itsuo Art Museum. Fifteen pieces in the collection have been designated Important Cultural Property and 19 pieces as Important Art Objects by the Japanese government.
