Memorial Hall

A commemorative museum of author Fumiko Hayashi, best known for her literary works, "Horoki (Vagabond's Song)" and "Ukigumo (Floating Clouds)".

The building is where Fumiko Hayashi lived for about ten years from 1941 until she died. When building the house, she did architectural research, and even visited Kyoto with an architect. They toured around studying traditional country homes, and Fumiko’s attention to detail can be seen all around the house.

The hori-gotatsu in the living room and tableware are preserved in its original state, and one can appreciate the tasteful traditional Japanese home touch.

Highlights

  • An irresistible destination for literature fans.
  • A traditional Japanese house built with attention to detail, which can be enjoyed even by non-booklovers.
  • Seasonal flowering plants can be found in the garden.
