SpotDomon Ken Museum

A modern building facing a calm pond in the foreground in spacious Iimoriyama Park is the Domon Ken Museum. In the background, Mount Chokai towers above vast paddy field areas. The museum is the world’s first private photo museum, built in 1983, and all of the 70,000 photos in display were donated by Domon Ken, a prominent photographer who hails from Sakata.
