Yumeji Local Art Museum Main Building

Japan, 703-8256 2-1-32 Hama, Naka-ku, Okayama City, Okayama Prefecture

This is an art museum dedicated to Yumeji Takehisa, a poet, painter, and pioneer of designer who was born in Okayama and represents the Taisho Romantic period. This small facility located right next to Korakuen is filled with adorable art of sad-looking women in kimonos and black cats. Exhibits include magazine illustrations, watercolors, woodblock prints, and folding screens. It will give you something you can read in English, so you won't miss out on the explanations. Here, there is ``Kuronosuke'' who looks exactly like the black cat Yumeji drew. Kuronosuke goes to work whenever he wants, so if you want to meet him, please check his work status on Instagram. Next door there is a cozy cafe and a great museum shop. At the cafe, in addition to lunch menus such as Chiya beef curry made with Okayama ingredients, sweets such as Yumeji's beloved baked confectionery ``Galbarji'' are also popular. The shop also has a wide variety of original goods that can only be purchased here.
