Koyo Okada Photo Art Museum

Main content starts here.

Area:Mt. Fuji/Fuji Five Lakes

Mr. Koyo Okada devoted his whole life to photographing Mt.Fuji. He used to be photographing Mt.Fuji, wearing wadded kimono from his favorite Japanese style hotel, and neighbors called him ‘Koyo-san’ with intimacy. He was born in Uonuma of Nigata prefecture, and his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were artists.He got interested in taking photos when he was in Waseda University, and he met Mt.Fuji seen from Oshino village when he was 21 years old. Since that time, the relationship with Mt.Fuji of more than 50 years had started. In the museum, there are a camera which he used for real, and the photo book that the cover was designed by the famous artist Taikan Yokoyama who was a close friend of Koyo.The life of Japanese people of those days with Mt.Fuji and the rural scenery at the foot of Mt.Fuji,which are in the picture, reminds us of the time and nature which Japan is losing. You should absolutely go to see his photos.
