local can be most persuasive
Aug 2017 • Family
We remember her most famous novel - melting point - as something famous. We do not remember who wrote that or what was about. It was a pleasant surprise that Asaikawa is the home town of the wirter, Ayako Miura, who is the author of melting point. We did review its story line, and her many works about her theme - forgiveness. I guess I am not mature enough to understand forgiveness. I, however, can admire her continuous efforts to think about the forgiveness and her efforts to write about the theme.

Ayako Miura Literature Museum in Her Home Town Asahikawa
Jul 2016 • Couples
This is a small private literature museum to commemorate the life and works of Ayako Miura and her husband. It is well-maintained and run by local volunteers who adore Miura's works.

She has written over eighty novels and non-fiction works in the second half of the 20th century. The debut novel was "Freezing Point (Hyouten)" in 1965 (English version in 1986). Some other novels translated into English include: "Shiokari Pass (Shiokari Touge)" in 1968 (English version in 1974), "Hidden Ranges (Kairei)" in 1981 (English version in 1993), "Lady Gracia (Hosokawa Garasha)" in 1975 (English version in 2004).

Many of her works are also translated into Chinese, Korean, French, Indonesian, etc.

Almost all her works are Christian-based.

If you have read her works before, it is definitely worth visiting this museum. Of course, a visit could encourage you to read some of her works in your own language.

A wonderful surprise
Jun 2015 • Friends
Came to this museum because of the wet weather and what a wonder surprise we had. This museum is well curated despite its small size. Available in 3 languages- mandarin, English & Japanese, the museum gave a glimpse into the life of this famous writer who lead an inspiring life despite her challenging circumstances. Located at the park which was featured in her first novel, it was an enjoyable afternoon.

Must visit for Miura Ayako fans
Jul 2014 • Family
All of us (including our teenage kids) love Miura Ayako's novels, so we were really looking forward to visiting this place. If you have ever read her novels, then you have a great chance of reading her description about the life in Asahikawa. The museum was not big, but was well organized and had a lot of information about the life of this author. The display was mostly in Japanese, but there was a section with English, describing her work. We had a chance to meet Mr. Miura there. He gave little tour and told stories about how Ayako worked on her novels. We all enjoyed the visit very much.

The museum is just right next to a forest preserve, so remember to bring your hiking shoes for a walk after visiting the museum. It's not really close, but we walked back to the train station afterwards.
