Kyotaro Nishimura was a novelist who penned over 400 works of fiction. When he visited Yugawara to rest at one point, he became enamored with its climate, natural features, and the warm hearts of the people there, prompting him to make it his permanent home. Sparked by this decision, the Nishimura Kyotaro Museum was established in his honor.
In addition to his works, including his handwritten manuscripts, other exhibits include large dioramas and his treasured collection, which symbolize his life as a novelist.
