A story of Tatsumikan written by Yu Inoue.
The connection between artist Takuma Tanaka and Minakami Town in Gunma Prefecture is not shallow. Many local celebrities in Minakami Town own the paintings of Mr. Takuma Tanaka.
One of the collectors is a hot spring Ryokan located in Kamimoku, Minakami-cho. Mr. Takuma Tanaka also loves the land and travels many times, sometimes staying in long term.
Tatsumikan is a long-established ryokan that has continued for 95 years since it was opened in 1924 AD.
This ryokan that loves art from generation to generation has been loved by many cultural people. There are such wonderful faces as Kitahara Hakushu, Wakayama Bokusui, Yosano Akiko, and painter Kiyoshi Yamashita. It is a hotel that the artist Takuma Tanaka and the poet Yu Inoue love in the present age.
