Now with many new and exciting facilities!

Here, at the Oku no Hosomichi Musubi no Chi Memorial Hall you can follow the journey that the famous haiku poet Matsuo Bashō took as he traveled on foot across Japan, which he then wrote about in his poetry collection Oku no Hosomichi¸ (often translated as The Narrow Road to the Deep North). Ogaki City itself is associated with Matsuo Bashō, as it was the final stop of his journey.

In the Bashō Wing of the Memorial Hall visitors can learn about his Oku no Hosomichi journey, what kind of person he was and what kind of life he led. There are many fascinating displays as well an AV Theater where visitors can view a 3-D movie that provides an overview of Matsuo Bashō's adventures. In addition, guests can learn about the history, culture and arts of Ogaki City in the Memorial Hall’s “Senken Wing”.
