Nagara Crafts Pavilion - Mitsuhashi Setsuko Art Museum

[A space with a gorgeous setting for appreciating and creating art and crafts.]
The Nagara area has been celebrated over the centuries for its outstanding beauty and seasonal changes , and Nagara Park ,established in 1903 on the slope of Mt. Nagara, is a popular site for cherry blossom viewing. The Nagara Craft Pavilion opened in the park in 1995 as a place for the general public to practice arts and crafts. Part of the facility is a museum that conserves and displays the paintings of Setsuko Mitsuhashi,whose life and art were deeply connected to the Nagara area. After losing her good arm when a tumor was removed in 1973, Ms. Mitsuhashi continued painting with her left hand and completed such works as"Hanaore-toge" (Hanaore Pass) and "Mii no Bansho" (Curfew at Mii) before she passed away in 1975 aged 35.
