You'll be able to learn more about the background of the novel through explanations of plot, characters, and location, along with maps of the area and setting as it appeared in the Edo period.

  • What a nice museum ! so very like Japanese !! Simple and elegant ~~ And the name of the museum means “ a cloud over the hill “ Don’t you think it’s such a charming name? Just the name of it definitely attracts me I was surprised this is a work of Ando Tadao who is one of my favorite world wide famous architecture we didn’t plan to visit this museum however it’s on the way to Bansuiso It’s a very interesting building ,also very early work of Ando Tadao. We didn’t mind to drop by to have a look . There’s a small cafe inside of museum. No charge to have a look and you can have a sip of Japanese tea while you are admiring this museum
  • This museum encourages me to read Sakanouenokumo again.
