Opened in April 1998, the annex (new building) has two exhibition rooms being used to display Chinese art objects and Western modern art. There is also a tea room and museum shop. The museum reception is located in the annex.
Tea Ceremony Room
In the garden next to the main building are two tea ceremony rooms, named Soan (not open to the public) and Chosentei. Both were constructed by Sotaro Kubo II from 1937 to 1939, imitating the Omotesenke school’s tea rooms, Fushinan and Zangetsutei. These were donated to the museum by the city of Izumi together with the main building, and in 2006 the tea ceremony rooms were designated by the national government as registered tangible cultural properties (structures).
