Conceived in 1974, the Kitakyushu Municipal Museum of Arts is a historic architectural and cultural landmark of the city of Kitakyushu in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. Designed by a renowned Japanese architect Arata Isozaki between 1972-74, the museum is notable for its scenic location. The museum is home to a large collection that counts more than 6,000 pieces of art and includes rare woodblock prints by artists of the Japanese Edo period, such as Katsushika Hokusai and Utagawa Kunisada. The museum collection also contains works of French Impressionism from artists like Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, and Claude Mone.
