Take in a huge canvas painting, reputed to be the world's largest, at Akita Museum Of Art. Painted by the revered Western-style painter Fujita Tsuguharu, and measuring 3.65 m by 20.5 m, the piece depicts traditional Akita life throughout the seasons. Along with this star attraction, the museum exhibits various other works, including rotating exhibitions by local artists. Upon entering the museum, designed by award-winning architect Tadao Ando, you'll be greeted by an enormous triangular skylight and stark concrete walls. After viewing the works, stop in the cafe, or enjoy a picnic outside the museum on the paved, picturesque public square.

  • I went for the first time. Works great, not too tightly or location. That may be new. Is this the style, weight, etc.?. Head is attracted to the old Museum on the side.

  • For me, Fujita said either image of French painter ever was, but, here's sum. Strong works especially covering a wall to the Fujita's much individuality. Just not seen in other works in this exhibition is seen in the other, reasonable 800 yen. Snow from the Cafe is very poetic.
