Yokoyama Taikan Memorial Hall




Regarded as one of Japan’s great modern painters, Yokoyama Taikan was born at the beginning of the Meiji restoration and lived through 89 years of change. In his house overlooking Shinobazu Pond, Yokoyama practised nihonga (traditional Japanese painting), taking images from nature as his inspiration. If his paintings don’t impress, his gardens will. The house closes in bad weather and occasionally during the summer.
