Shiro Ozaki Memorial Hall

The house in which Shiro Ozaki, who was the central figure of the Magome-bunshi-mura (Magome writer village) spent 10 years until his death in 1964, has been restored as his memorial hall.

Shiro moved to the Sanno neighborhood in 1923 and established his permanent place as a popular writer with the success of his novel “Life Theater.”

The memorial hall was opened in May 2008 to pass down the atmosphere of Magome-bunshi-mura to future generations by introducing Shiro’s former residence (parlor, study, library, and garden).

The inside of the building is not open to the public. Exhibits can be seen from the garden side.
