The Nobuo Ishibashi Memorial Museum An introduction to the exhibits

Visitors to the museum pass through four different exhibition spaces – the Deai, Shinobi, Kansha, and Habikino Garden rooms – where they can see and hear for themselves what Nobuo Ishibashi dreamed of and thought during the decades of rapid change through which he lived and worked. Mr. Ishibashi's ideas and social philosophy are presented via the medium of video images, audio recordings of his speeches, and a display of articles closely associated with his life and work.
