  • I visited four times. It is the Annunciation El Greco's most famous works. Also have plenty of art supplies. The countryside of Kurashiki (excuse me), astonishing beauty supplies like a lot.

  • You can admire several famous paintings, but especially the Annunciation El Greco's famous work is. I think is worth a look, it's on the highest amount at the time of the bid.

  • Elementary school age, and living in Okayama, was accompanied by his father, often visited. This is the origin I was like fine art. This time, in about 40 years Buri served visitors. I think I moved a number of masterpieces that was etched on the eye and reunited with an old friend. I admire in the eye for choosing Kojima torajiro's collected works again, but during that time, nearly conquered the major museums around the world and we are proud, but could not compete in the amount of hotel collection might not never lose in quality. As a painter he also talent. Please visit Kojima torajiro Memorial Museum. Seems no less direct visit Atelier anecdotes of the encounter in a Paris art gallery of Annunciation El Greco is famous for Impressionist works, and begging for a treasured piece, got it? I'd say that miracle in the history of modern art in Japan!

  • Wow! Such an impressive collection in such a remote little town.
  • Nice art museum and great collection
  • Interesting collection of western art
  • It was just a wonderful piece. "Annunciation" is at the end of the route, especially unforgettable. Proportional to the admission fees, there was great excitement. Take it during the tourism in the area.

  • Aesthetic area in the Museum. To forget the passage of time works great but I was drunk.
