Museum of modern and contemporary regional art
It is said that the art history of Miyakonojo began with Shugetsu Tokan, a pupil of the famous artist during the Muromachi period, Sesshu.
The tradition and history inspired many artists including the modern Japanese painter Yamauchi Tamon, Masuda Gyokujo, and the Western-style painter Yamada Shinichi. Thanks to the influence of these artists, the art population of Miyakonojo is increasing, and in November 1981, the Miyakonojo City Museum of Art opened as its first public museum in Miyazaki prefecture.
Approximately 382 million yen was invested in 1998 and 1999 to work on comprehensive renovation, making it a facility to hold national scale traveling exhibitions.
As a local museum familiar to citizens, it holds various special exhibitions as well as theme exhibitions of its own collections.
