Yumeji Seika Syonen Sansou夢二郷土美術館 夢二生家記念館・少年山荘

Art Museum

The birthplace and home where the well-known Taisho Roman poet, painter, and artist Yumeji Takehisa lived until the age of 16. A traditional Japanese home with a thatched roof built some 250 years ago, both the interior and the exterior are preserved in the state they were in when Yumeji Takehisa lived here. The Syonen Sansou was designed by Takehisa and served as his Tokyo studio and home; on the artist’s 95th birthday in 1979, the structure was restored with the help of Takehisa’s second son, Fujihiko. Hanging scrolls, folding screens, sketches, and other works by Takehisa are displayed inside.

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.
