    Clouds Above the Hill, a historical novel by one of Japan’s leading novelists Ryōtarō Shiba, is partly set in Matsuyama, and the city has taken the novel as a theme in its development plans. This museum, designed by architect Tadao Andō, is a key part of this plan. Set in the Meiji period when Japan was emerging as a modern nation, the novel presents the lives of brothers Yoshifuru and Saneyuki Akiyama, and Shiki Masaoka, who all came from Matsuyama. The museum has exhibits about them and their historical background in the Meiji period. The novel was serialized in newspapers from 1968 to 1972, and was also made into a television drama.
