Hirafuku Memorial Museum of Arts was established in 1988. Receiving praise as a local public entity that actively promotes the region, the museum was constructed to showcase the talent of local artists.
The style of the building reminds us of the old Northern European architectural style; however, by adapting to the style of the traditional surrounding buildings, the age gap is not evident.
The site covered with trees is the birthplace of history and education in Kakunodate city. Originally, in the Edo period, this was the site of the house of the Satakehokke Senior Statesman. Later, the public school “Kakunodate Junior High School” was built here.
Hirafuku Memorial Museum of Arts is named after the Hirafuku father and son. Their works, as well as those of other well-known local artists such as Naotake Odano, are exhibited in the museum.
