Preserving Cultural Heritage: The Kannon Villages Museum

Established in 1984, the museum serves as a dedicated center for preserving the rich cultural heritage of Takatsuki Town of Naghama. Including this area, the city holds over 100 Buddhist Kannon statues that have occupied local villages since the 8th century. These villages are known collectively as “Kannon Villages.” The museum was specifically established to research, safeguard, and promote these invaluable cultural treasures of the area.

Additionally, the facility offers various educational programs such as lectures, workshops, and field trips aimed at enlightening visitors about the cultural legacy deeply rooted in this area.
