A museum dedicated to Koetsu Ichinei, one of Japan's top mountain photographers and the leading photographer of the Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group. Housed inside the renovated building of the former Sounkyo Elementary School, the museum's 1,570 square meters of exhibition space make it one of the largest photo museums in Japan. This space has been put to use and one of the museum's defining characteristics is its many large photographs on display. The museum's collection consists of photos taken by Ichinei presenting the four seasons of the Daisetsuzan Volcanic Group as well as the creatures that live there.

Review of Sounkyo Mt.Daisetsu Photo Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2016/08/30 Good Introduction for the HIke up Mt Kurodake
Great way to get some idea of the terrain on the way up the mountain.

Can run through the place in a short time.
Reviewed:2016/02/24 Good information of the mountain
Has all the information you need about the Kurodake mountain and it's surrounding mountains. Friendly guides who will show you the hiking trails. Good Base to start your visit up Kurodake mountain
Reviewed:2015/08/04 Small scale
Very small, no need to make a special effort to go and see it, but it is at the entrance of the ropeway ride so it won't hurt to go inside and have a look. Nothing spectacular, really really small...
