The Goto Museum of Art: Discover Colorful Paintings That Bring Hokkaido’s Landscapes to Life – HOKKAIDO LOVE!

Goto Sumio was an acknowledged master of Nihonga, Japanese-style painting, made with naturally derived pigments. This museum, dedicated to his life works, features permanent exhibitions of his major paintings and original sketches, many of which were inspired by the scenic beauty of Hokkaido. Kamifurano, in particular, held a cherished place in the artist’s heart; he chose to have his own studio here in 1987 which later turned into this museum! After experiencing Goto’s colorful and evocative works, head upstairs to the restaurant for an incredible view of the Tokachidake Mountain Range.
