Near the sea, touch the ship with the work of a writer who loved Yokohama
Ryohei Yanagihara Art Museum

The "Ryohei Yanagihara Art Museum" opened on March 27, 2018 (Tuesday) in the "Yokohama Port Museum" where the sailing ship Nippon Maru, which symbolizes Minatomirai, is preserved and opened to the public. It is the only museum in Japan where the work of illustrator and painter Ryohei Yanagihara (1931-2015), who gave birth to the popular mascot character "Uncle Tris" of Suntory "Torys Whiskey" representing the Showa era, is permanently exhibited. This was a friendship with Mr. Yanagihara because he loved ships like no other and because of the bereaved family's desire to "enjoy many people" with the 4,848 works donated to Yokohama City in 2016. It seems that the opening has been decided at the place.


The sailing ship Nippon Maru is moored in front of the museum. By the way, this is also the "Sohantenpan" that spreads all the sails so that you can see the appearance of the sailing ship Nippon Maru at the time of active service.It is held regularly at the place and is worth seeing! ( Click here for details such as the schedule!)

Let's go to "Ryohei Yanagihara Art Museum".


From the entrance of the permanent exhibition room, you can see the "Yokohama Minato Museum"! It is advantageous to purchase a "common ticket" that allows you to see all of the "Sail Training Ship Nippon Maru", "Yokohama Minato Museum" and "Ryohei Yanagihara Art Museum". ..
[Single building ticket] General ¥ 400, 65 years old and over ¥ 250, elementary, junior high and high school students ¥ 200 [Common ticket] General ¥ 600, 65 years old and over ¥ 400, elementary, junior high and high school students ¥ 300 ¥ 100 for both the building ticket and the common ticket)

The exhibition room is divided into four themes: "Ryo. And Ship Painting", "Illustration and Design", "Uncle Tris and Advertising", and "Special Exhibition".

"Ryo. And the picture of the ship" zone. "Ryo." Is the signature that Mr. Yanagihara wrote in his work. We mainly display cutouts of the original production method of cutting and pasting colored paper, and paintings of ships made with oil paintings, watercolors, lithographs, etc.

There is also an exhibition that reproduces Mr. Yanagihara's atelier so that he can be surrounded by his children (works).

"Illustration and Design" zone. Here, you can learn about various activities as an illustrator and graphic designer, such as graphic design, illustration, animation, manga, binding, and picture books.

Those that Mr. Yanagihara used habitually. Jacket, turtleneck knit, hat … fashionable. Other cameras, glasses, etc … Just like the work, I just take a closer look.

The animation of Uncle Tris is also wonderful !! (If you want, I want to watch while drinking alcohol … ♡)


This is an exhibition of "How to make a single color paper cutout". The cutouts used for monochrome printing such as newspapers and magazines are black, dark gray (actual color is moss green) and light gray (actually dull light yellow green). Please take a peek at the secret while actually reading the caption of the work at the venue, such as stacking three sheets, drafting with a pencil, and cutting out with a single-edged razor.

In "Uncle Tris and Advertising Zone", the work of the advertising department of Kotobukiya (currently Suntory), which became the starting point as an illustrator and graphic designer, is introduced in the advertisement version of Uncle Tris, illustrations, posters, novelties, etc. ..

(Showa dads !! Don't you miss this ad?)

In the "Special Exhibition" zone held on the day of the interview, entitled "60th Anniversary of Uncle Tris", illustrations and novelties are lined up to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the birth of "Uncle Tris" in July 2018. I was there. Currently, instead of this, "Yokohama Ships and Ports" is being held.

Uncle Tris toothpick (1970s) … I want it !!

After leaving the spectacular exhibition room, the fun after watching the art is … to the "Museum Shop". Ankle Tris with a flag will welcome you. Immediately after entering, Ryohei Yanagihara Goods Corner was newly established.

Including lithographs, original frame stamp sets based on Yanagihara's works, postcards, mobile cleaners, mugs, picture books, etc. are lined up!

To commemorate your visit to the museum, purchasing a postcard is a must!
Ryohei Museum Postcard ¥ 108 each (tax included)

This is what I was personally interested in. It is a pin badge that Uncle Tris dressed as various people. Sailor, Shinsengumi, Daikoku, Western Uncle Tris ~! (Laughs)
Pin badge ¥ 648 each (tax included)

The work of Mr. Ryohei Yanagihara, who loved ships, was introduced in the place where the ship was moored in front of me … Looking at each work, I realized that it was a really stylish measure. If you visit Minatomirai, try walking toward the sailing ship Nippon Maru. A cute, fashionable and very cool "Uncle Tris" is waiting there.
