Muro Saisei Kinenkan Museum室生犀星記念館

Memorial Hall

The poet Saisei Muro was active from Japan’s Taisho through Showa periods. This museum was constructed after remodeling Saisei’s vacation home in which he resided every summer since the first time he came to Karuizawa up until the year preceding his death. As a building in which he met with many literary masters such as Yasunari Kawabata and Naoya Shiga, it is distinctive for its garden with its beautiful green moss.

Nagano Main Areas


Nagano prefecture is an exciting mix of mountains, hot spring monkeys, and preserved Edo history. At the heart of the Japanese Alps, Nagano is one of the country's most popular destinations, whether in winter for its snow sports and the much-loved Jigokudani Monkey Park or in the warmer months for discovering the undulating hills on foot. For fantastic Edo architecture, head to the Kiso Valley for a 60-kilometer stretch of quaint wooden buildings that marked the Nakasendo route 200 years ago.
