Sold at Yaizu Koizumi Yakumo Memorial Museum and Yaizu City Tourism Association Megumi Coffee Lab's drip coffee called "Yakumo no Jikan." Inspired by Yakumo Koizumi's works ``At Yaizu,'' ``Otoyoshi Daruma,'' ``Drifting,'' ``Seaside,'' and ``Night-light Fantasy.'' The coffee is named after the same title while reading the work. When you drink it, it feels like the world is unfolding before your eyes. A taste and aroma that perfectly matches the world view. If you like Yakumo-san, we recommend purchasing it if the museum has it in stock.

After eating in Yaizu city, I searched for this place and stopped by. The facility is adjacent to a library, and there were many areas where photography was prohibited, but the elderly person at the reception desk explained the situation in detail. I knew Yakumo Koizumi's name, but I didn't know him very well, so the exhibits and explanations were interesting.

Unfortunately, it was closed when I visited. I would like to visit you again. By the way, it's adjacent to (attached to?) the Cultural Center, so if you use the Cultural Center as a guide, you can't go wrong.

Shintaro Yamaguchi was talking passionately about Yakumo Koizumi on the radio. Since Shintaro loves ghosts, he will probably also link to classic ghost stories. I only recently learned that there is a memorial museum in Yaizu, and it was talked about on the radio by Shintaro Yamaguchi, and I was wondering why Yaizu is there. I was wondering about this and went there. ``Yaizu Cultural Center (where they hold concerts etc.)'', ``Library'' The parking lot is vast as it is a facility that includes a folklore museum and a park. Free! If you are riding a bicycle, there is a bicycle parking lot under the roof at the entrance of the Bunka Kaikan, which is the shortest route to the Yakumo Memorial Hall and the library. Is it necessary to protect valuable books from UV rays? All the blinds were lowered so you couldn't see inside from the outside (I wonder if they weren't doing that?). I entered the museum because there was a sign saying it was open. It was reserved from start to finish 😺 Take your temperature and fill out the list ✏️. There were many people from outside the prefecture. Recommended for those interested in Yakumo Koizumi, both in terms of materials and quality. Although it is a small memorial hall, I thought Yaizu would be a good place to talk about Yakumo Koizumi, especially in his later years. At the recommendation of a staff member, I watched the video 🎥 first, and it was a short drama with an NHK-like touch. Even as I was sitting leisurely, I could vaguely feel Yakumo Koizumi. The daruma that was on display also appeared in the video 🎥, so you can enjoy it (oh, this daruma!) 😺 Video screenings like this have become commonplace in museums these days, and the quality is quite poor! It's made to be dramatic, so I try to watch it first☝️Personally, I wanted to know a little more about Lafcadio Hearn/Setsu Koizumi, as there was no story about how they met and they suddenly got married😄 Well, I'll have to do some research🍶 Although it's small, I think it looks like Yaizu!

My wife wanted to see it on a trip to Yaizu, so I went there with my family from Nagoya during the Obon holiday. There were replicas of Mr. Koizumi's published books and letters he wrote about his feelings to his wife, and while it was interesting, it was small and I finished looking at it in about 30 minutes. The tour is combined with the adjacent Yaizu Museum. Both are free and parking is free. You can kill time without spending money, so you can do it leisurely.
