  Dazai Osamu Memorial Museum "Shayokan"

Major Meiji era landowner Genemon Tsushima, Osamu Dazai's father, had this gabled-roof house built in June of 1907. All of the buildings, including the rice storehouse, were built from cypress and the whole garden, including the house and ponds, covers over 2,200 square meters. After the war the Tsushima family sold the land and from 1950 it became Shayokan, a tourist attraction and ryokan. However, in March of 1996 the (former) Kanagi-machi bought and restored it to its original state to become the current memorial museum.
