Yoshiya Nobuko Memorial Museum

The Yoshiya Nobuko Memorial Museum preserves the legacy of a trail-blazing writer from the early 20th century.

Just a 10-minute walk away from the Kamakura Literary Museum lies the former house of one of Japan’s most celebrated and prolific novelists. Nobuko Yoshiya was a pioneer of Japanese lesbian literature and wrote prolifically about intense emotional relationships between young girls. She built this house in Kamakura for her and her lifelong partner, Monma Chiyo, and there they entertained numerous other female artists and writers.
