Each year, more than 200,000 people visit Miyazawa Kenji Memorial, a museum detailing the extraordinary life and accomplishments of an internationally acclaimed Japanese polymath poet known for his fairy tales. Set in the author’s former home, where he spent his last days teaching agronomy, this fine museum reveals Kenji’s interests and accomplishments as an educator, farmer, scientist, and utopian social reformer. Browse through the author’s original manuscripts and drawings, personal belongings, and library, before trying interactive displays of Kenji’s experiments. Unfortunately, very little of the museum's material has been translated into English. Use our Hanamaki trip planner to arrange your visit to Miyazawa Kenji Memorial and other attractions in Hanamaki.

Miyazawa Kenji Memorial Reviews
童話作家として有名な賢治だが、それ以外の宗教家、教育者、科学者、農業者としての側面を知ることが出来る。 それにしても、３７歳という短い生涯で、こんなにも後世の芸術家に影響を与え、作品を愛されている人もいないだろう。 賢治の人生を見ていても、仕事にしろ、創作にしろ、交友関係も、濃密で全速力で駆け抜けたようで、やはり尋常な人ではない、天才だ！と今更ながら感じる。 生きている間は無名に等しく、刊行... more »Kenji is famous as a fairy tale writer, but he can learn about other religious people, educators, scientists and farmers. Nevertheless, in his short life at the age of 37, no one has influenced and loved his work. Even if you look at Kenji's life, work, create, and companionship, it seems to have run through at full speed in a dense, perfect-speed manner, and he is still a genius. And i feel it even more now. It was an exhibit with minerals that was personally interesting, even though the book was published only in "Restaurants with a lot of orders" while alive. Kongo stone (diamond) sapphire, ruby, peacock stone, etc. I remembered in my mind the works such as "Galactic Railway" and "Fire of the Shell" in my mind. I wanted to look at it forever. When I visited before, the number of goods decreased, and it was regrettable for a moment though the souvenir was already substantial.
宮沢賢治という人が、 どれだけの思いを抱えて生きていたのかを考えさせられる記念館。 簡単に列挙すると・・・・・・ １．資産家の坊ちゃんとして育ったことへの貧しい人達への罪悪感 ２．自然にはぐくまれた情緒。 ３．法華経への帰依、国柱会への傾倒、多様な宗教への洞察、 ４．農業科学者としての見識、科学と自然の調和を目指し、 人々の幸せの為の科学を求めた理想主義者としての賢治、 ５．教員としての賢治、その... more »A memorial hall that makes you think about how much thought you have lived with a person named Kenji Miyazawa. If you list it briefly... 1. Guilt to the poor for growing up as a wealthy boy 2. The emotion sprung up in nature. 3. Devotion to The Legal Appreciation, Devotion to the National Pillars Association, Insight into Diverse Religions, 4. Kenji as an idealist who sought science for people's happiness, aiming at the harmony of insight and science and nature as an agricultural scientist, 5. Kenji as a teacher, the figure of Kenji, whose students caught a glimpse of his sensibility. 6. Because the ideal is too high, the appearance to agony, 7. Kenji as a writer, 8. Kenji as a company employee, 9. Kenji's fragile life, her scattered sister, and kenji, who was destined to scatter herself young. When I started writing, it stopped. In any case, it has been transmitted that the multifaceted nature of Kenji Human and the manifestation of the emotion are dropped into a series of masterpieces. Above all, I strongly felt that the nature and climate of Hanamaki had created the emotions of Kenji Miyazawa.
Japanese literature beautifully presented
From the balcony you can look down the city of Hanamaki over Kitakami river. The exhibition is also interesting as it gathers info by different aspects such as science or religion.
