  • Archaic Kubota Castle across the street from the Museum of modern art. Saito Shinichi exhibition has just been held, so we appreciate. Spiral stairs are distinctive, interesting.

  • I think to be honest did not expect at all, with no prior knowledge went "writers of the permanent exhibition is only one" that Museum of art, is surprised by the unusual strong style. Apparently the building itself is a famous architect's work is, but w didn't know it at the special exhibition Saito Shinichi exhibition was held. Is 存ji上genakatta better than this, but personally, more fashionable motif of the foreign country or city, Northeast Northern Akita's order was and was overwhelmingly gloomy. (compliment) picture. After writing is beautiful. "Big case made to decorate the picture of the writer says that Hirano Masakichi rich loves Fujita tsuguharu" was felt in Akita Prefectural Museum of art Hirano Masakichi collection and to explain roughly miscellaneous. Feel great in the romance stuff anymore, there "Oh Yes..." became is not. Fujita tsuguharu "writers didn't know I'm very glad to. It was very approachable and professional illustration and cartoon-like pictures. Room with a large mural in the main best (2, 3rd floor atrium Gallery) in small canvas paintings (maybe series called 'treasure of France"), and it is very very cute! In the Museum shop there so was expecting postcards, products in the series are not, was really disappointing. Illustrations postcards or compact mirror I had wanted it to! Outdoor café in the Museum Shop, ocean view (and do it? ) In the water garden Senshu Park direction hope, really nice. Level too fashionable, trembling. The 小母猪 Wednesday, however, seemed to be wearing tourist tension too nervous, how went with zero knowledge really w w I can see is, 10-staff. Main is a large mural of Akita events (campus oil on canvas 365 x 2050 cm), seems purposely asked to decorate the walls of the Museum. And built a House for it to draw it (well, a big enough). While watching the brushwork while watching the picture "really Hirano Masakichi Mr. Fujita's fans I wonder!. See picture was developed at the campus of Fujita's brush I'm happy I would have wanted. I was grinning right?! "or" Fujita, also is eager to would have increased the tension. This heat to brush onto the campus probably figured it out! ", I thought. I imagine it is. I know the truth. No-the Museum feel a big the romance was.
