We are exhibiting and researching materials related to Rai Sanyo, a writer representing Japan in the late Edo period, and various materials related to the modern culture of arts and crafts. In addition to the permanent exhibition that introduces Rai Sanyo's chronology and episodes, we also hold exhibitions seven to eight times a year. Rai Sanyo, who was taken back from the Hiroshima domain and was imprisoned in his room, was designated as a national historic site at that time, and it is said that he compiled a draft of "Nihon Gaishi" at that time. It disappeared. The current room was restored by Hiroshima Prefecture in 1958.
