The Yumeji Art Museum features a collection of works by Okayama-born Yumeji Takehisa, a poet and artist who was active in the early 1900s. The museum is listed in the “Michelin Green Guide” with a rating of One-Star. The collection portrays numerous women with slender limbs posed in smooth S-shaped lines, an established characteristic of the style that came to be known as Yumeji’s “Bijin-ga.” At the museum shop, visitors can purchase original postcards, stationery, and other goods. In addition, visitors can also enjoy Yumeji’s favorite European baked snack, Garibaldi biscuits, only found at the museum’s cafe. Come and enjoy tea time just as Yumeji would have it.
