Hiroshima Kenritsu Bijutsukan (Art Museum)
Hiroshima Kenritsu Bijutsukan was reopened in October 1996. It is an attractive urban art museum with facilities and exhibits appropriate to the new century. The collection here presently contains more than 3,400 works of art, including many with strong links to Hiroshima Prefecture, the industrial art of Japan and other Asian countries, and art of the 1920s and the 1930s. Works by Ikuo Hirayama, a Nihonga painter, and others are on display in the permanent exhibit room. An art library and the Hi-Vision Gallery lecture hall are also included in the facilities. The museum supports the creative endeavors of local residents with a Citizens Gallery, dedicated to sharing their works with the public at large.'
