poster for Mori Ogai Memorial Museum

In 2012, the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mori Ogai, one of the greatest writers of the Meiji era, the museum opened on the site of his former residence, Kancho-ro. Ogai was a novelist, a playwright, a critic, a translator, and an army doctor, and his outstanding talent is evident from his achievements, but can also be seen from his interactions with cultural figures. Following the example of Ogai's activities, the museum aims to be a place where people not only encounter literature, but also widely interact with literature, people, and the city. The museum also has a library and a cafe.
