- Opened in April 2004, the Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art was established in order to restore the spirit of Japanese people after the 1995 Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake. The museum management believes that art can heal grave mental and emotional injuries through its subtle manifestations. The venue is therefore called "Amuseum" by its caretakers—a museum that salutes the spirit of mankind. Its varied art collection comprises sculptures, prints and paintings by renowned as well as upcoming artistes. Check the website for further information.
