Museum
1237.52 m2

This museum is located in the castletown of Taketa which is famous for its impregnable Bungo Okajo Castle. Rentaro Taki who was born in Taketa composed the folk song entitled “Kojo No Tsuki” based on the theme of Okajo Castle. Situated along a water channel, this museum is designed to look like a long fence by combining the elements of a white building wall and bamboo lattice. The smoked bamboo lattice is extended inside the museum, where the history of this castletown and works of art by the literarti painter Chikuden Tanomura who is from the Oka Domain (clan) are on display. The “historical Chikuden-sou” (former residence of Chikuden Tanomura) situated on a slope behind the museum is connected by an elevator which is covered by a lattice, creating a design that exudes history into the entire town.
