Travel Guide - Homma Museum of Art


Homma Museum of Art displays items owned by the Honma family. The family, who lived in the Sakata area, was one of the wealthiest landowner from the Edo Period (1603 - 1868) until the end of the World War II. The site of the museum was also a villa previously owned by the family. The villa's main building called Seien-kaku was built in 1813. The Kyoto-style residence was once used as a rest house for Prince Hirohito (later Emperor Showa) when he visited Yamagata in 1925. There is also a Japanese garden called Kakubu-en that is beautiful throughout all four seasons.
