The museum commemorates Eiji Yoshikawa, a nationally famous author renowned for his historical novels such as “Miyamoto Musashi” “Sangokushi” and “Shin Heike Monogatari”.
The museum was built in Ome City, where he is an honourary citizen, to honour his outstanding achievements and to prevent the dispersal of his many valuable materials and pass them on to future generations.
The museum contains Western and Japanese-style facilities built between the Edo (1603-1867) and Meiji (1868-1912) periods. Together with its beautiful garden, it creates a temporal journey for visitors.

Mr Gyokudo KAWAI is a great master of Japanese painting, contributed to the advancement of Japanese art and culture through the mid 18s to the early 19th century.
The museum is located in his favorite place - along the Mitake valley to preserve his works, and personal belongings, and to impart his true value to posterity for many years to come

The valley has been selected as one of the 100 best waters in Japan by the Japanese Ministry of the Environment. It is considered one of the most beautiful clear water beauties in the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park. The 4 km promenade on both banks of the Tama River delights the eye of the beholder with its seasonal abundance of nature, including cherry blossoms in spring, fresh greenery in early summer, and autumn leaves in autumn.
