Miyazawa Kenji Memorial, Hanamaki

3.4
Each year, more than 200,000 people visit Miyazawa Kenji Memorial, a museum detailing the extraordinary life and accomplishments of an internationally acclaimed Japanese polymath poet known for his fairy tales. Set in the author’s former home, where he spent his last days teaching agronomy, this fine museum reveals Kenji’s interests and accomplishments as an educator, farmer, scientist, and utopian social reformer. Browse through the author’s original manuscripts and drawings, personal belongings, and library, before trying interactive displays of Kenji’s experiments. Unfortunately, very little of the museum's material has been translated into English. Use our Hanamaki trip planner to arrange your visit to Miyazawa Kenji Memorial and other attractions in Hanamaki.

Admission fees: can see the fairytale village "Kenji's school"and "hanamaki City Museum" set tickets are sold, so you buy at set rates ☆ unlike "Kenji school" in the fairy tale village, this Memorial, and child-friendly rather than Kenji Miyazawa's achievements to learn that students and adults for exhibitions. In Kenji Miyazawa's literature and movies divided into 5 areas, are exhibited. He demonstrated talent in many fields of history and achievement can ☆ I have read little of his work, but through a tour of the Museum, added me in his greatness. He was surprised that people were familiar with the science, agriculture, astronomy, not mere fairy tale writer.

Autograph of still strong from ☆ home to read, I read so far I bought were selling a copy of this amenimo was less an assortment of his handwriting was similar duplication, ☆ shop scroll, so, the Read in books, more than excitement was doubled.
