Learning together
about history and human beings


 The Kadokawa Culture Promotion Foundation was established on February 25, 1976, based on the wishes of the Japanese scholar and
poet Genyoshi Kadokawa, the founder of Kadokawa Shoten. In the 40 years since its establishment, the foundation has been presenting awards,
providing subsidies and engaging in educational activities related to literature, art and film. On August 1, 2020, we opened the Kadokawa
Musashino Museum, a cultural facility featuring a library, art gallery and museum in Tokorozawa. It was built with the aim of contributing to
the promotion of culture and art and the development of a vibrant and unique community. From its base in the region of Musashino and
Tokorozawa, the foundation will continue to work in the hope of continuing to contribute to Japanese culture, through projects that meet the
needs of the new era.
