The Yoshizawa Memorial Museum of Art ,Sano was opened in 2002 as the Kuzuu Town Yoshizawa Memorial Museum of Art after receiving a donation of art collections and museum facilities from the Yoshizawa family, an old local family. In 2002, the museum was opened as the Kuzuu Town Yoshizawa Memorial Art Museum, which later became the Sano City Yoshizawa Memorial Art Museum following the merger in 2006. The Yoshizawa Collection has been formed by the Yoshizawa family, an old family in this area, for about 200 years since the late Edo period. The collection consists of a rich variety of works, including the representative work by Jakuchu Ito, "Saichufu", paintings from Edo to modern Japan, and modern and contemporary ceramics by Hazan Itaya and others.
The museum houses the collection as well as artworks related to Sano City, and holds special exhibitions four times a year with themes that are easy to relate to, providing visitors with opportunities to experience the appeal and fun of Japanese art.
