Homma Museum of Art本間美術館

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 Incorporated Foundation Homma Art Museum

Reviewed:2019/11/04 旧別荘は必見です
鉄筋コンクリート造りの美術館棟の他、本間家別邸の建物とお庭も必見です。日本一の大地主と言われた本間家だけあって、かなりの名品をもっています。
Reviewed:2019/08/18 本間家ゆかりの美術品
「本間様には及びもせぬが、せめてなりたやお殿様」と謳われるほどの栄華を誇ったという本間家です。戦後の農地解放までは日本最大の地主といわれた豪商です。1947年、本間家の別邸だった場所に作られた美術館で本間家ゆかりの美術品が展示しています。ちょうど「茶の湯の世界」が開催中でした。
Reviewed:2019/05/04 珍しい美術品が数多い美術館
棟方志功、円山応挙、芹沢銈介などとても希少で珍しい美術品が鑑賞できます。ここだけに現存する木曽義仲の文書、幕末の黒船を書いた絵画など見応えはありました。

          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.
