The artist Kyotaro Nishimura visited Yugawara to rest and recuperate, and he was so enchanted by its climate and people that he decided to live here. The Nishimura Kyotaro Museum was opened in honor of him.
In addition to more than 300 of his creations, we also exhibit items that represent his life as a writer, including handwritten manuscripts, large dioramas and his secret collection.
Please stop by and get a new insight into the life and work of Kyotaro Nishimura.

From Yugawara Station, take the bus headed to Okuyugawara or Fudo-Taki for about 5 minutes
