Yamanashi Prefectural Museum of Literature

Main content starts here.

The Yamanashi Prefecture Museum of Literature, located next to the Prefectural Art Museum, opened in 1989. With a major diplay about the works of great Meiji-era author Ryunosuke Akutagawa, the museum also features displays about many other important Japanese literary artists--such as Ichiyo Higuchi, known for her work "Nigorie," and Yamanashi-born Dakotsu Iida, one of the most famous modern haiku poets.
