Michio Miyagi Memorial Hall 宮城道雄記念館

35 Nakamachi, Shinjuku City, Tokyo

In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.

This is Japan's first memorial hall to celebrate a musician. Michio Miyagi, who became blind when he was eight, invented the 80-stringed koto and was the co-founder of the New Japanese Music Movement. Relive this master's life through CDs, DVDs, and documents—many of which are now Japan's tangible cultural properties.
