In addition to Japanese paintings depicting pure and graceful female figures, the lively life of downtown Tokyo, and literary works by Ichiyo Higuchi and Kyoka Izumi, we also introduce Kiyokata's works from when she was an illustrator.

A collection of valuable sculptures, paintings, crafts, and calligraphy passed down from temples and shrines in Kamakura

This museum of history and art opened in 1928 and houses representative works of cultural assets such as sculptures, paintings, crafts, and ancient documents from Kamakura and nearby shrines and temples, which are deposited, stored, and displayed.
Many of these were produced during the Kamakura to Muromachi period or were brought from China, so they have a strong sense of a regional or exotic flavor that is different from Kyoto and Nara, or where the influence of Zen Buddhism culture is significant. Features.

A memorial hall for Mr. and Mrs. Kawakita, who left a great legacy in the Japanese film industry. Movie screenings are also popular

Built on the site of the former home of Nagamasa and Kashiko Kawakita, who introduced European films to Japan before the war and contributed to international exchange through film, the museum opened in April 2010 with the aim of developing film culture.
In Kamakura, where movie theaters have disappeared, we have a rare movie screening venue as well as an exhibition room for film materials, one of the few in the country, where you can enjoy the charm of movies in the atmosphere of the ancient capital of Kamakura.

Speaking of Kamakura's crafts, it is Kamakura-bori. Along with tracing the history of Kamakura-bori, the production experience is also popular.

Kamakura-bori is a traditional craft that is known for its exquisite combination of carving shading and lacquer color.
This is the only facility where you can see unique Kamakura-bori works from the Muromachi period to the present day, sometimes profoundly, sometimes gorgeously, and sometimes simply, all at once.

Taking a stroll down the back streets may be a new way to enjoy Kamakura.
