Museum Featuring Works by Matsumoto's Favorite Daughter, World-Famous Yayoi Kusama.

Matsumoto/Northern Alps


Since its opening in April 2002, the Matsumoto City Museum of Art has exhibited a permanent collection of Matsumoto-born artist Yayoi Kusuma, as well as rooms dedicated to other local artists such as writer Shinzan Kamijo and oil painter Kazuo Tamura. Temporary exhibits are regularly scheduled throughout the year.
Yayoi Kusama's masterpiece "Magical Flower" is in front of the entrance, and even the museum's vending machines are covered with her trademark polka dots.
