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.
