"Hyakunin Isshu" (One Hundred Poets, One Poem Each) – is the most famous anthology of Japanese Waka poems. It is a collection of one hundred original poems spanning one hundred poets.
Saga Arashiyama is the home of "Hyakunin Isshu" which brought a greatly influence on Japanese culture. In our permanent exhibition, we introduce its history from the birth of Hyakun Isshu to the recent competitive karuta.
We hope you enjoy the world of "Hyakunin Isshu."

Up the stone stairway and through the wooden gate, the rock garden awaits. Whether it is the cherry tree in spring, Satsuki azaleas in early summer, dazzling colored leaves in autumn, or snow-capped peaks in winter, you can delight in the beauty of every season here.
It is located near Mount Ogura, the birth place of "One Hundred Poems," and the scenery from the second floor which incorporates Arashiyama and Oi River is as a fine piece of Japanese Painting.
Looking out onto the garden is our café, Arashiyama OMOKAGE Terrace. Relax and relish the atmosphere of Kyoto in the open and airy space. After a cup of Kyoto Coffee or Maccha Latte, don't miss the museum shop where you can find unique products and books related with the exhibitions.
