Welcome to Yokoyama Taikan Memorial Hall

The former residence of Yokoyama Taikan (1868-1958) in Ueno Ikenohata area is opened to the public as a memorial hall. When Taikan settled here in 1908, it was a small site at first, but it was gradually expanded to nearly the present scale in 1919 as Taikan gained fame as an artist. On March 10, 1945, his residence was burnt down by an air raid, so he temporarily moved to his villa in Izusan, Atami City. Taikan returned to Ikenohata in August of 1954, as he reconstructed his home using the foundation of the old residence. Since then, he produced numerous works here until he died at the age of 90.
