Hyogo Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan (Museum of Modern Art)

Hyogo Kenritsu Kindai Bijutsukan opened its doors at the base of the mountain Rokko-san in October 1970, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Hyogo Prefecture. The collection at this museum is made up of modern sculpture, modern prints, modern art and the work of artists who have a close connection with Hyogo Prefecture. Visitors to the sculpture room can trace one hundred years of sculpture history, starting with Rodin. The works of artists who are closely associated with Hyogo Prefecture are exhibited in the East Wing of the museum. Included here are a room that commemorates Heizo Kanayama, the Kobe-born Western-style painter who had a genius for landscape painting, and another room commemorating Ryohei Koiso. On display in the modern art room of the West Wing is an exhibit of works of modern Japanese art addressing a variety of different themes.
