A cultural-arts complex where you can enjoy art and gorgeous garden!

Today we are introducing "Ishibashi Cultural Center", a cultural-arts complex built by Ishibashi Shojiro (1889-1976) in 1956 with the hope of regional development, which was later donated to Kurume City. The well-known global tire manufacturer "BRIDGESTONE" was born in Kurume City in the southern part of Fukuoka Prefecture and was founded by Mr. Ishibashi with the company being named after his surname when translated to English: 石 Ishi (stone) and 橋 Hashi (bridge).
