Yuzawa Town
Feel the culture of Snow Country
There are two exhibitions available for viewing. One focuses on Yasunari Kawabata's novel "Snow Country" which is set in Yuzawa. The other details the lifestyle and history of Yuzawa, the "Snow Country". The "Snow Country - The World of Japanese Paintings" gallery located on the first floor is highly recommended. This exhibit features fourteen works depicting various scenes from "Snow Country" including "Yukiguni no Tsuki" by Culture Merit Award recipient Tatsuo Takayama and "Kanjinchō" by Chuusaku Ooyama, also a recipient of the Culture Merit Award.
