Sendai Literature Museum

Venture through the forest of words

The Sendai Literature Museum collects and preserves the works and related materials of local literary figures and other figures associated with the region. It also works to present modern literary materials that are often scattered and lost to be made available to the public as public property through research, exhibitions, and other activities, and make them available to future generations. Its unique architecture makes the most of the natural environment, and is befitting as a symbol of the community.
