Kanuma Municipal Art Museum of Kawakami Sumio (鹿沼市立川上澄生美術館)
This art museum was founded in 1992 with the donation of some 2,000 works of art from Katsusaburo Hasegawa (1912-2001), a Kanuma City native who was a student of Kawakami Sumio. The museum was built with fukaiwa stone quarried in Kanuma. Its exterior, which resembles the western-style buildings of the Meiji period, was designed based on one of Kawakami's woodblock prints. Its interior was finished with generous amounts of wood. The museum rotates its exhibits four times per year, allowing visitors to explore a variety of different themes.

Neighboring Oku-Nikko is an extension of the fantastic scenery famous for its autumn leaves, while Tochigi’s capital, Utsunomiya, is the only place in the world where you can find oya stone beautifully exhibited in temples and the Oya History Museum.
