Hokkaidoritsu Hakodate Bijutsukan (Art Museum)
Hokkaidoritsu Hakodate Bijutukan is located in Goryokaku, a pentagonal fortress which is designated a Special Historic Monument by the Japanese government. The museum has worked actively to assemble a collection that includes works by artists like Matsusaburo Yokoyama and Miematsu Tanabe, both with connections to the southern region of Hokkaido. A number of modern Western sculptures are on display both inside and outside the building, including works by Rodin, Bourdelle and Renoir. There is also an Otei Kinenshitsu (Otei Memorial Room), primarily housing works created and collected by Otei Kaneko, a calligrapher of this region. The museum also exhibits Western paintings, works of calligraphy and ceramics.
