This small museum is impressive (and free if you are over 65 and have a document to prove it). The collection is very interesting and well-displayed although there are fewer explanations in English than in some museums. We combined a stop here with our walk from Ryoanji and Rokoun-ji as it is about half way in between these two attractions.... More

I visted this interesting museum today arriving on Bus 12 which stops right out the front. The Isho Domoto Museum of Fine Arts was designed by Isho Domoto (1891-1975) with the hope of displaying his own work. The museum was eventually donated to the Kyoto Prefectural Government in 1991.

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.
