Daisetz T. Suzuki (1870-1966) was a Buddhist philosopher who was crucial to the spread of Zen teachings in the West. Opened in 2011, the architect Yoshio Taniguchi designed the space to reflect the landscape in Kanazawa, as the museum is surrounded by stone walls and a reflective pond while set against impressive plateaus. The museum is structured so that the visitor goes through stages of observing, learning, and contemplating about the ideas and achievements of D.T. Suzuki.
