Hayashibara Art Museum

Art Museum
Located to the east of Okayama Castle Keep, the Hayashibara Museum of Art's main entrance is a row-house gate that was used as an office of the Ikeda family, the former feudal lord of Okayama during the Meiji period. Designed by architect Maekawa Kunio, the museum is composed of a series of exhibition rooms surrounding a bamboo grove courtyard, and is spacious and well designed so that visitors do not get tired of walking around.

    The title says it all, this is a small museum that has a great variety of exhibitions. Check what is being exhibited before going. It is a fun and interesting place to check out while in Okayama

    The cost of entry was over twice what the guidebook suggested it would be, its now 700 yen per person, and unless you have an interest in the quality of steel and kinds of samurai swords used there...
  • Small gem of a museum designed by Kunio Maekawa

    This very small, private museum was worth the visit for several reasons. I believe that their collection of Japanese arts far exceeds their display space, so you might see something very different...
