About the Kuroda Memorial Hall:

In 1928, Kuroda Memorial Hall was opened when Kuroda Seiki (黒田清輝) left a part of his estate to support for art-related projects. Kuroda is considered as the father of modern Western-style painting in Japan.  The building was designed by Okada Shinichirō and renewed in September 2001. As a result, a gallery was added, and many of Kuroda's art works can be seen.
