Yorozu Tetsugoro Memorial Museum (萬鉄五郎記念美術館)

4.0

Art Museum

"About two minutes by car from Towa Interchange on the Kamaishi Expressway. An art museum that honors Yorozu Tetsugoro, a painter from Tsuchizawa, Towa-cho, Hanamaki City and one of the pioneers of modern Japanese art. Under the theme of ""Yorozu and Tsuchizawa,"" the museum displays collected work that includes oil paintings, ink paintings, sketches, and other items such as notebooks, letters, photographs, and his personal articles. The Haccho Dozo on the west side of the museum is the earthen storehouse from his family home that was transferred to the site and rebuilt. The gallery holds exhibitions with a focus on contemporary art. The adjacent cafe is open to everyone, not just museum visitors."

住所的には花巻市ですが、花巻の市街地からも、新幹線新花巻駅からも、花巻空港からも遠いです。鉄道駅はありますが,本数が限られるので、車で行くことをおすすめします。私も車で行きましたが、最後の曲がるところがわからず、一度通り過ぎてしまいました。それくらい細い道路(路地)を上がっていった高台にあります。

          A northern Tohoku prefecture promising peace and quiet, Iwate is sparsely populated, replacing people with snow-capped mountains, history-rich sites, and fields of crops that are to thank for the region's delicious local cuisine. Meander along the three-city Golden Route, where you'll visit the grand Buddhist temples of Hiraizumi and the Tono folk villages before tasting the three famed noodle dishes of Morioka.
