    Yamaguchi Pref. Yamaguchishi Kameyamachou 3-1
    Built on the site of the former Kameyama campus of the Faculty of Economics, Yamaguchi University, the Yamaguchi Prefectural Art Museum is a public art museum with a strong local flavor that is closely integrated with the local community. The Museum’s collections are oriented toward artists with a connection to Yamaguchi Prefecture; for example, they include works from Kazuki Yasuo’s “Siberia Series,” works by Kobayashi Wasaku, etc. The collections also include many outstanding Nihonga paintings (including the “Landscape Scroll After Kegong Gao,” which has been designated as an Important Cultural Property) and photographic works, etc. The Museum holds several exhibitions of works from its own collections and special exhibitions every year. The bright, cheerful cafe facing the central atrium is very popular with visitors.

    [高評価したい点] ・コレクション展(一般展)は大人300円と低価格。 ・美術館に併設されているカフェがおしゃれ。 [低評価したい点] ・ミュージアムショップは特別展開催中は特別展にフォーカスを当てているものだが…もう少し品数を増やしてもいいのではないだろうか。

    The Hagi Uragami Museum is a museum in Hagi City that is dedicated to Ukiyo-e woodblock prints, East Asian ceramics and ceramic art.

Yamaguchi Areas

around-area-map

Heading west along Japan’s largest island, Honshu, the very last prefecture you’ll reach is Yamaguchi, separated from Kyushu by a small strip of water known as the Kanmon Straits, which the far-reaching harbor city Shimonoseki looks over. With water at every turn, the seafood of Yamaguchi is an indisputable highlight, and we’re not talking just the usual fish dishes—the notorious fugu, or puffer fish, is a Japanese delicacy that was discovered in Yamaguchi prefecture, making it the best place to try it out.
