The museum was a house, which has a hip and gable roof that was designed by Dazai’s father, Genemon Tsushima who was a wealthy landowner during the Meiji Period, and built in June 1907. In March 1996, former Kanagi Town bought it and restored in its original condition. And then it was opened as the current memorial museum.
