NAKAMURA “Katsusai” Junsaku 1876-1953
Junsaku was born as the third son of NAMIKAWA Gensaku in Yamato-K?riyama City, Nara Prefecture.
He married the daughter of NAKAMURA Ukichi and adopted the family name of NAKAMURA.
Junsaku built a fortune, owing companies of maritime transport and of insurance.
While being a successful businessman, he actively collected art objects of East Asia. In order to display his collection in his hometown of Nara, he purchased from another businessman,
SEKI Shintaro, the Isuien Garden, already well-known for its scenic beauty.
A part of the contract with SEKI was to open the garden to public and to display Junsaku’s collection of art in the park.
This led to the establishment of the Neiraku Art Foundation in 1940.
