    Chiba Pref. Sakurashi Shinmachi 210
    The Sakura City Museum of Art contains a good collection of literary works with some connection to Sakura or Boso Area, and maintains exhibits that feature modern Japanese art which extend those works. It was built in order to preserve and utilize the old Kawasaki Bank Sakura Branch (a Prefectural Tangible Cultural Property) built during the Taisho period. There’s also a café inside where you can enjoy a hand-made meal and dessert using local ingredients.

    This is not a big museum, but rather an exposition venue. Very well tended, with extremely polite and attentive personel. We saw an expo on cycling that was near-perfect, with the possibility to ride...
