As aficionados know, Israel plays host to one of the finest collections of Japanese art in the world. Collected originally by architect Felix Tikotin in the years prior to World War II, this exceptional museum owns some 7000 traditional and modern works, from antique swords to painted screens to fine ceramics. The museum is located in a handsome, Japanese-inspired building (with sliding doors and a zen garden) in Central Carmel.
