The Kobe City Museum of Literature (神戸文学館) is dedicated to the literary scene in Kobe, Hyōgo Prefecture, Japan in the Meiji, Taishō, Shōwa, and Heisei periods. The museum opened in 2006 in the former Branch Memorial Chapel of Kwansei Gakuin University, a Meiji period building largely funded by John Kerr Branch, a scion and financier from Richmond, Virginia.
It is next to Ōji Zoo and across the street from a contemporary art gallery dedicated to the illustrator Yokoo Tadanori.

  • It is very cosy and you can find information about writers who were born in Kobe City, but it is not as big as I thought it would be. It is good for people who are interested in japanese literature...  more »
  • 神戶文學館不大,外表相當精巧可愛,但展覽本身馬馬虎虎。比起陳列室,更喜歡閱覽室的安靜氛圍。免費入館。
  • 推薦給很熟悉日文的人,畢竟是文學館,內所展出的大多是文學相關的展品,不懂日文的話會覺得很無趣。
