Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum

The museum was originally Taro Okamoto’s house/atelier. After he passed away in 11996, at the age of 84 it was turned into a museum. You can feel the energy of Taro Okamoto who drew lots paintings, created documentations by dictation, wrestled against carvings, met with many people and created huge monuments like “Tower of the Sun”in Osaka and wall paintings.
