Yugawara Art Museum

Yugawara was known as a hot spring resort that was written in the Manyoshu in ancient times, and many cultural figures visited it from the Meiji era to the Showa era. Japanese-style painter Takeuchi Seiho and Western-style painter Sotaro Yasui, who were called "East's Great View, West's Seiho," settled in this area in their later years and worked on their production. The Municipal Yugawara Museum of Art was opened in 1998 after renovating a long-established inn where Soseki Natsume and Takeuchi Seiho stayed. Currently, in addition to the "Reiji Hiramatsu Hall", which displays the works of contemporary Japanese-style painter Reiji Hiramatsu, and the "Permanent Hall", which is a collection of works, we are holding exhibitions such as special exhibitions and contemporary artist exhibitions. The Contemporary Artists Exhibition usually holds works and artists related to Yugawara four times a year. In addition, Reiji Hiramatsu's "Ten Scenic Yugawara" is also focusing on events and planning, such as holding an event that is unique in that 20 candidate works are referred to the votes of visitors. The atelier of Reiji Hiramatsu will be open to the public, and you can observe the works in progress and the Japanese painting materials that are actually used. <Access> About 12 minutes by bus from JR Yugawara Station to "Fudo Falls" or "Oku Yugawara"
