Review of Yumeji Art Museum (Yumeji-Kyodo Bijutsukan)

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2017/11/18 A small museum with pleasant surprises!
The Yumeji Art Museum is located right across the bridge from the Korayuen (North Gate / parking lot), around 5 minutes of walking on foot.

The museum is dedicated to the Japanese artist Yumeji...
Reviewed:2015/08/09 Small, but perfectly formed
Yumeji Art is right next to Korakuen...I combined the two and saved a few hundred yen on the ticket price.

The art here is just lovely...lots of ladies in wistful poses...no signage in English, but...
Reviewed:2014/09/22 Beautiful Illustrations
Well known artist. I like his style of work. You can often find examples of his work when researching Japanese art. He is a master at depicting Beautiful women in Kimono.

Okayama Main Areas

around-area-map

Overshadowed by Hiroshima to the west and the Kansai region to the east, Okayama is an easy spot to miss but a nature-rich gem where the Seto Inland Sea laps at its toes and peach and grape farms complete its interior. One of Japan's Three Great Gardens, Koraku-en in Okayama city is well worth a visit before progressing to Kurashiki, where preserved wooden Edo buildings line the picturesque canal.
