Takushinkan

Opened it in 1987, Takushinkan is a famous photo gallery by Shinzo Maeda and featuring his son Akira. Shinzo Maeda was a well-respected landscape photographer whose photos put Biei on the map as one of the best sightseeing spots in Hokkaido back in the 1970s. His photos of Biei were used in photo collections, posters, postcards, films etc. A former elementary school exhibits his landscape work of Biei as well as the photos done by his son Akira Maeda. It takes only 10 minutes from JR Biei Station to this photo gallery, and the admission is free.
