Okuda Genso Sayume Art Museum (奥田元宋・小由女美術館)

The Okuda Genso Sayume Art Museum is located in the center of Miyoshi City. Opened in 2005, the museum is named after the couple, Japanese-style painter Okuda Genso and Japanese doll artist Okuda Sayume, who both received awards for their contributions to culture. The museum has a permanent display of Japanese paintings by Okuda Genso and dolls by Sayume. It also frequently holds special exhibitions such as the Sylvanian Families Exhibition. The museum also has a tea ceremony room, where visitors can enjoy a tea ceremony experience on weekends and holidays for an additional fee.

The Okuda Genso Sayume Museum was designed so that the moon can be seen from the lobby of the museum, respecting the world view of Okuda Genso, who painted many Japanese paintings with the moon as a motif. This makes it possible to take beautiful pictures at night, where the moon seems to be floating on the surface of the water in the lobby. On full moon nights, many visitors enjoy photographing and viewing the moon.
