Located a short walk from Zenkoji Temple, the Nagano Prefectural Shinano Art Museum (쌧MZp, Nagano-ken Shinano Bijutsukan) stages rotating exhibitions of fine art with different themes. The respective art works are done mostly by artists who were born in or related to Nagano Prefecture or depict beautiful local scenery.

In 1990, the Higashiyama Kaii Gallery was built adjacent to the museum. The gallery exhibits the works of Higashiyama Kaii, who was very impressed with the scenery of Nagano and drew many landscape paintings of it. Rotating exhibitions of his work are held according to the seasons.

Access

The museum and the gallery are a five minute walk northeast of Zenkoji Temple.
