Yamadera Basho Memorial Hall reviews
Basho is considered one of the best, if not the best, Haiku poet. If one is really, really interested in this art form, this museum is well worth a visit. If Haiku is not your thing, visiting the... more »

Very small museum, and over priced for what there is there. It's up a hill, not worth the walk. Everything is only in Japanese. The area is very nice, but I recommend spending more time on the hike and temples and shrines more than on the museums in this area.
The Basho museum is up the hill from the station, on the opposite side to the temples. It’s actually a lovely view as you get to the top of the town and temples opposite. The museum itself is in amazing building - great architecture- there’s no photos inside, but they have some of Basho’s original scrolls as well as art by hi contemporaries. Unfortunately only some of the exhibits have English descriptions, which is sad, because some of the meaning is lost when you don’t know the background to what you are looking at. There’s also a map showing some of Basho’s journey and a video documentary. Admission is ¥400.
