The Museum consists
of two parts, his former house and newly built
museum after his death.
You can walk around the garden and see the author's
study from outside. The author lived here until
his death, 12th. Feb. 1996.
Then, you proceed to the new part through the
curving glass corridor. Inside, at first, you
see the huge bookshelf(11meters high)with 20,000
books in it.
With these books the author wrote about 500 historical
novels, essays, critical essays and many other
works.We regard this area as “his other study”.
Please sit on the chair looking up at the wall
of books and spend time feeling the author's spirit.
These parts were designed by Ando Tadao, a famous
Japanese architect,to show the creative world
of Shiba Ryotaro.
Monday is national holiday, the museum closes
