Sakima Art Museum

Sakima Art Museum


This museum was opened on restored land from the U.S. military on November 23, 1994, from wishes of director Michio Sakima, who has been collecting the works of Georges-Henri Rouault for 20 years, to “make a place for meditating”. The work, “Map of the Battle of Okinawa,” by Toshi and Iri Maruki, which was drawn on war, is displayed to convey the truth of war. Since the director was particular about the Battle of Okinawa, the building full of originality was built to the sunset horizon on June 23 (Irei no Hi – Okinawa Memorial Day). The whole Futenma Air Station can be seen from the roof.
