Kashiwabara Art Museum

The Kashiwabara art museum was established to show you the Japanese traditional culture and the Sprit. In the homepage, I introduce the Armors of Samurai as "life-and-death culture. " Moreover, various culture which has colored the life of a samurai is introduced as " culture of a life." Probably, this category can make you feel the deep soul nature of a woman of those days. Furthermore, as a "special exhibit", I am introducing the piece that enriched samurai's life for all seasons which are quite unique items. I would be more than satisfied if you can touch the breath of the wonderful soul of Japanese tradition culture by this homepage.

Wishing for the inheritance of the Japanese culture and spirit

In March 2004, the three years' rebuilding project of Kintai Bridge was successfully finished. As a symbol of Iwakuni city, the Kintai Bridge got its rebirth after 50 years. I am deeply moved by this event as a person who was born and raised in Iwakuni city. On this occasion, our musuem was also renewed including some changes of the exhibition style to suit for the new bridge and the name from "Iwakuni history art museum"to "Iwakuni art museum". Now, you are more than welcome for the reopening.
