Kochi Literary Museum高知県立文学館

Museum / Science Museum

Kochi Literary Museum sits proudly at the foot of the hill on which Kochi Castle is situated. The displays, which are arranged both chronologically and by theme, include materials relating to, and works by, approximately 40 authors and literati with links to the Kochi area, ranging from Kino Tsurayuki—the author of the Tosa Nikki (“Tosa Diary”), which is the earliest surviving literary diary written in Japanese—to modern authors such as Hiro Arikawa. The Kochi Literary Museum has adopted a unique approach to its permanent exhibitions, holding rotating exhibitions that feature both authors whose anniversaries are being commemorated, and exhibitions on authors who have recently become a focus of interest. Every visit to the Museum is sure to provide an opportunity to learn something new about literature. Kochi Literary Museum also has a special commemorative room dedicated to the physicist and essayist Terada Torahiko, who was born in Kochi, and a special exhibition on the world portrayed in the literary works of Miyao Tomiko, with displays of manuscripts, letters, pictures and other important materials.

高知城の城郭の周辺には今工事中の県立図書館や歴史博物館がありますが、外壁が石張りの重厚な建物が、高知県ゆかりの作家や作品を紹介する文学館になっていました。
古くは土佐日記の紀貫之や、近代では、司馬遼太郎、大岡昇平、井伏鱒二、高浜虚子など読書家には必見の文学館です。
Reviewed:2019/06/30 土佐日記から現代・今の文学まで。どの年齢層にも親しみを持てる企画展が素晴らしい。
[高評価したい点]
・土佐日記など平安時代から、戦国・近代・WWⅡ前後と時代とともに高知にゆかり有る作家や作品を細かく紹介。それほど難しい言葉で説明しているわけではないのでわかりやすい。

          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
