The Nakagawa-machi Bato Hiroshige Museum of Art opened in November 2000 with the aim of displaying the Aoki Collection donated to the town and revitalizing local cultural activities. The museum holds special exhibitions on various themes centered on Ukiyoe, aiming to create a museum where visitors can make new discoveries each time they visit. The building was designed by the world-famous architect Kengo Kuma, based on the image of Utagawa Hiroshige's masterpiece "Shono Hakuu in the Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido".
