This art museum is located in Akaoka-cho, Konan City. It stores the folding screen paintings by the late Edo to early Meiji period painter Ekin (Hirose Kinzo) that are displayed at the Suruda Hachimangu Jinsai festival held on July 14 and 15 each year. One exhibit allows visitors to view the folding screen paintings in the same dark setting as the night of the festival. Another allows visitors to view the paintings through a literal hole in the wall. The museum regularly rotates the paintings that are on display. It also features exhibits about the life of Ekin.

Kochi Main Areas
The largest of Shikoku’s prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island’s most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you’re a pilgrim or not, Kochi’s 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
