  • Not put in time. Shinji Lake and monuments, artifacts and creatures of the gods of Setsuna's collaborations and sunset time provides us. I visited another season, is listening to what you want to watch the sunset from the restaurant or second floor.

  • Distinctive streamlined Museum building is very good. 1st floor lobby is not required for admission. From the area of Lake Shinji sunset is beautiful from here. Think a lot of people are taking the photos to. Shirakata parks of this area were nice.

  • Nice gallery that's worth an afternoon. It's also a good place to watch the sunset from.
  • Rooms are very nice. Seems to enjoy Lake Shinji sunset is good, but we couldn't in a matter of hours. In the afternoon sun reflecting off the Lake Shinji, may be hard to see. Morning or evening

  • It's nice and calm scenery of Lake Shinji. I think if it is fine the evening sunset is clearly visible.
