Koga Masao Memorial Hall and Birthplace


Travel back in time to the Showa period accompanied by Koga melodies!

The Koga Masao Memorial Hall and Birthplace offers a chance to learn about the life and output of Koga Masao, the first musician in Japan to be awarded the National Medal of Honor.
Travel back in time, accompanied by the melodies of Masao Koga, with the white building featuring a treble clef, and the adjacent thatched roof house in which he lived.
So why not spend a moment here in Okawa City, where Koga Masao, creator of countless famous songs that touch the heart of the Japanese people, grew up as a child.
