Miyazawa Kenji Memorial, Hanamaki

(3.5/5 based on 120 reviews on the web)
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. Miyazawa Kenji Memorial is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Hanamaki Edition.

  • "Back multi way curves! Stop attention! "With signs like, watch out on the road driving. Admission fee is 350 yen. The hotel shooting ban. Fire water in pictograph display Kenji world, so excited. Bear sighting information advantage! South inclined flowerbeds walking please take care.

  • Room spacious hall permanent exhibition and special exhibitions, it is one's degree. Facility itself not so much big, exhibits so many didn't. Location of Miyazawa Kenji had collected minerals, mineral exhibition. Convenient to go by taxi from Shin-hanamaki station. It's about one meter in the cab.
