"Shigureden", the hall of Ogura Hyakunin Isshu

"Ogura Hyakunin Isshu", which is one of the most famous Japanese classical literatures.
It is said that it originated with Teika Fujiwara, who played an active role from the late Heian Era to the early Kamakura Era. He was asked by Yoritsuna (Renjo) Utsunomiya, the father of his son Tameie's wife, to choose one hundred poems to be written on the poetry cardboards, which were to be displayed in the Yoritsuna's villa in Sagano, Kyoto.
Shigureden is the only museum of Hyakunin Isshu in Japan where you can "see", "feel" and "learn" the diverse world of it.
It is temporarily closed for renovation. We will keep you updated for further details.
