  • Excelent selection of works, scupltures and extraordinary nice countryside and park! Just do not be in a hurry. Devote time to relax! You can even put your feet into the hot spring and relax.
  • A museum where the setting as beautiful as the art it contains. Be prepared to spend an entire day walking around exploring great art. Great place to go with or without kids. A must vist if you are in the area
  • What a lovely museum. Opened about 1970, housing many outdoor exhibits and several indoor exhibits in buildings scattered around the MASSIVE plot the museum sits on. It is not diminished by the rain as long as you bring and umbrella.
  • Awesome place with some weird sculptures. And some very interesting graphic sculptures. The triangle room is interesting also just near the entrance. Wish they could allow persons to go closer to the sculptures.
  • beautiful museum and garden. If can get a discount if you have hokone free pass ticket.
