Kita-Kamakura Yoh Shomei Art Museum北鎌倉 葉祥明美術館
An art museum dedicated to collecting watercolors and oil paintings by Kumamoto Prefecture native and artist Yoh Shomei. The museum is located along the route from Kita-Kamakura Station to the Meigetsu-in Temple. Built based on the concept of an old Western-style house which was once the home to a painter and poet father, a gentle mother, a 10 year old daughter, and a five year old son, the museum looks as if it came from the pages of a storybook.

Kanagawa Main Areas
Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
