    Is the experience of the beautiful days of autumn. The news is a little before fall trip consider helpful. First building was stiff. I think somewhere in the first was the Güell Park wind. Went inside, and Japanese-style garden and the statue and is enough time to leave. And reaches an extreme piece has an exquisite work of art, something beautiful to touch by all means! Not just clothes. It is observed that the number has been previously exhibited in the Museum of Kyoto, but later are ordered here by is overwhelming. Or spent much time and effort, and will consider many things. Then click here to visit the next day, Subaru ran and went to Fuji 5th station. Right views of autumn, the 1 bamboo pieces are extended. It was breathtaking. In the fall to go to either both experience. (Just so crowded the parking lot. Please be careful. )

    Garden is lovely. But the museum I didn't enjoy. The museum displays kimonos that indeed look nice but this is not what I came for or what I am into . The building is nice. You pay 1300 for an adult entrance an other 500 if you'd like to visit a glass something exposition we didn't visit but that gives you access to a nice view point a d a drink is included.

    Very nice discovery about a famous kimono designer in Japan, they have a 20 minutes video in English that explains the his life. The kimonos are breathtaking. The museum park is also very nice to have a small walk.

    Wow, set in a beautiful quiet forest the gaudi inspired gate sets the scene. Inside and out is a thing of architectual beauty and the kimono exhibition and tea rooms are unique. Go visit

    Breathtaking. I had never been, or even thought that I could be, moved to tears of beauty, but this display did it. I cannot recommend enough just how important it is to any visitor to Japan to see this exhibit.
