Homma Museum of Art (本間美術館)

4.0

Art Museum

A garden and art museum a five minute walk from Sakata Station. Built as a garden and villa for the Homma family of wealthy merchants and landowners, the facility was opened to the public as a private art museum in 1947. The museum’s collection consists primarily of works of art passed down for generations in the Homma family, and the museum is filled with ancient writings, antiques, paintings, and other valuable artwork. Other highlights include the Seienkaku, a beautiful wood villa built in the Kyoto style; and the Kakubuen, a traditional garden built around a central pond celebrated as one of the best Japanese gardens in the country and renowned for the beauty of its fall foliage.

Review of Honma Art Museum Garden

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/07/28 Garden is great, museum is not
Honma Museum of Art was a quick ten minute walk from the train station. The museum itself was quite disappointing and hardly worth the trip for its small exhibition that didn’t allow photos. First...
Reviewed:2018/10/30 Beautiful small garden in autumn
This small garden was a short walk from the station. It was very well laid out, and luckily there were not very many visitors. There were many good photographic views so it was worth a slow walk...
Reviewed:2017/05/22 Interesting museum beautiful gardens
If you enjoy seeing an old and historical collection the pieces in the museum are well worth looking at. Having Google translator was really helpful to understand the age and range of these pieces...

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
