The museum was opened in 1984, near the Korakuen Garden in commemoration of the 100th birthday of Yumeji Takehisa. Here, in addition to the hanging scrolls drawn by Yumeji, the main building has about 3,000 items including watercolors and oil paintings, letters and books and other materials. In addition to the permanent exhibition where about 100 works can be seen, exhibitions introducing Yumeji’s art from various viewpoints is held several times a year. At the museum cafe, you can have fancy European baked raisin cookies called Garibaldi which were a favorite of Yumeji.

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


          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.
