郷さくら美術館
Collection

Sato Sakura Museum of Art collects contemporary Nihonga paintings created by the artists who were born in the Showa period. The main Museum’s location, Koriyama City, Fukushima is renowned for the nationally-designated Natural Monument, Miharu Takizakura (1000-year-old “waterfall” cherry tree) while the neighbouring Sukagawa City is famous for the 240-year-old Peony Park. The area’s natural beauty prompted visiting artists to produce great works, many of which have been acquired for Museum’s collection. One of the Museum’s unique features is its strong focus on large-size paintings – many of the approximately 500 works of the collection are large pieces.
