The ruins of Kusado Sengen-cho, a medieval town that was sleeping on the bottom of the Ashida River, have been revived by many years of excavation. It is a museum where you can learn about the history and culture of Setouchi while walking around the streets of the time and seeing how people live. In addition, one of the permanent exhibition rooms will be used as a modern culture exhibition room, and the history and culture of the early modern period will be introduced based on materials related to Sazan Kan, an important cultural property. Hiroshima Prefecture is the birthplace of Sazan Kan, a Confucian scholar and educator of the Edo period who is famous as a Chinese poet. Through the materials left by Chayama, it is an exhibition where you can feel familiar with the exchanges between Chayama and literary people from all over the country, and learn about modern scholarship, culture, and art in an easy-to-understand manner.
