Kampo Museum


Museums & Sights


The ‘Kampo’ Museum is named after Kampo Harada, the most eminent calligrapher of the 20th century. Harada saw calligraphy as a way to advance peace and self-fulfilment, and he passed on his wisdom to several million students via his Japan Calligraphy Education Federation. Some of his masterpieces are on display at this quaint museum, along with examples of calligraphy and writing tools from around the world. The museum will also stage a calligraphy workshop if you call in advance.
