This museum is a memorial museum that introduces the achievements of Masayoshi Ohira, the 68th and 69th Prime Ministers.
Former Prime Minister Masayoshi Ohira was born in 1910 in Wada Village, Mitoyo District, Kagawa Prefecture (currently Toyohama Town, Kanonji City).
After working as a secretary to Hayato Ikeda (the 58th to 60th Prime Minister), he became a politician, and in the Kakuei Tanaka Cabinet, he realized the historic big project of normalizing diplomatic relations between Japan and China as Minister for Foreign Affairs. After that, in both the Tanaka and Miki cabinets, he was in charge of financial management as the Minister of Finance, and in 1978 he became the 68th Prime Minister.
He set out a vision for garden city nations and cooperation with the Pacific Rim, and worked on administrative and financial reforms to realize a “small government.” In November 1979, the second Ohira Cabinet was established.
However, in May 1980, a vote of no confidence in the Cabinet was passed, resulting in a general election for dissolution. He died on June 12, 1980, during the election period, which was the same day as the general election (age 70).

Restoration exhibition of the study
We are restoring the Japanese-style room in the old memorial hall where we stayed when we returned home.
The bran, tatami mats, and windows of the old memorial hall have been reproduced as they are. The window glass is made of bulletproof glass for protection.
In this corner, you can feel the atmosphere as if Ohira was sitting there.
