Tōson Memorial Museum (藤村記念館, Tōson Kinenkan) is a museum in Magome-juku, Nakatsugawa, Gifu Prefecture, Japan dedicated to the life and works of Shimazaki Tōson. The writer was born in the former Honjin in 1872, but his birthplace and childhood home was mostly destroyed in the conflagration of 1895. Rebuilt to designs by Taniguchi Yoshirō in 1947, the museum opened in 1952. The core of the collection comprises some 5,000 items donated by Shimazaki Tōson's eldest son.

  • Interesting if you know about Toson, but otherwise can be a bit boring. Not very relevant to other cultures.

  • The former main inn of Magome and birthplace of the famous author Toson Shimazako to who it is now a museum. The exhibits are spread over 3 buildings and have some English descriptions. There is also a small room showing a video about his life with English subtitles. Although the translation isn’t very good it’s still easy to understand and informative. Including the video it took just over and hour to see everything and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
  • 島崎藤村生誕150周年 Congratulations on the 150th Birthday of SHIMAZAKI Tōson, a great Japanese writer in the Meiji era.
