Kiyoshi Yamashita was known as the wandering genius. Often referred to as the Japanese Vincent van Gogh, this museum permanently displays 130 pieces of paper collage, felt pen art, and other original works, as well as 30 photographic records.
Please take your time and enjoy his works of art depicting flowers, insects, fireworks, and more that he created during and after the war. These works were created when he wandered throughout Japan for 16 years during food shortages, creating works of art using his unique technique and sense of color as thanks for hosts who gave him room and board.
The nostalgic ambiance of this museum is sure to bring back long-abandoned memories.
There is also a souvenir section selling goods such as picture postcards and rice balls, as well as a cafe called “Hanabi Cafe.”
