Koizumi Yakumo Kinenkan (Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Hall)

Koizumi Yakumo Kinenkan (Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Hall) Review

The Lafcadio Hearn Memorial Hall has a good collection of the author's manuscripts and other artifacts related to his life in Japan. One room also holds small rotating art and culture exhibitions related to Matsue. It's adjacent to Koizumi Yakumo Kyukyo, Hearn's former residence in Matsue. Two minutes from the Memorial Hall is the Hearn Kyukyo bus stop, where a bus goes back to the center of town and the station.
