This white museum nestled on the scenic slopes of Mt. Iwanai is known for having one of the largest Picasso print collections in Japan: more than 200 works ranging from The Frugal Meal, a masterpiece from his Blue Period, to Erotica, from his late years. Its annex displays works by Keiyu Nishimura, an internationally renowned painter from the neighboring Kyowa Town, and works created by Hokkaido-based artists under the theme of Umareizuru Nayami (The Agony of Being Born), a novel set in Iwanai Town and written by Takeo Arishima.
