Ken Domon (1909-1990) is perhaps one of the most prolific 20th century photographers, having worked in a wide range of fields from photojournalism to portraits of cultural icons and Buddhist statues. The museum collection consists of 70,000 of Domon’s works, gifted by the photographer himself to his hometown of Sakata. It opened in 1983 in scenic Iimoriyama Park.
