Hasegawa Machiko Art Museum
From 1946 until 1974, Hasegawa Machiko drew the comic strip Sazae-san, about an ordinary Japanese family led by a good-natured mother and wife, Sazae. The strip was a huge success and for most of its run appeared daily in the Asahi Shimbun. While entirely original and thoroughly Japanese, "Sazae-san's" popularity in Japan is comparable to the American strip Peanuts. Hasegawa was also an art collector, and her collection along with additions by her sister Mariko is housed in the museum.
The museum showcases original drawings, clay dolls and paintings, as well as works by Western and Japanese artists.
