The Kamakura Annex, which opened in 1984, is about 350 meters on foot in the direction of North Kamakura from the Old Kamakura Museum (closed in March 2016). The designer is Masato Otaka (1923-2010). It is designed to blend in with the residential area sandwiched between mountains. It has been open for more than 30 years, and after being closed for about two years to repair facilities and improve user services, it reopened on October 12, 2019. The walls of the exhibition room have been renewed, and a cafe space has been added on the terrace facing the sculpture garden to improve accessibility.
