InformationInformation

Ken Domon Memorial Hall located in Iimoriyama Park contains 70,000 photographs of the renowned Japanese photographer, Ken Domon. The memorial hall was opened in 1983 after he donated his works to his hometown, Sakata City.
Ken Domon believed that photography should be involved with social issues, and his works often provide a sensitive insight into the underside of Japanese life in the postwar years of the Showa Period (1926 - 1989).
The statue displayed in the museum's courtyard was created by Isamu Noguchi and also worth watching.
