  • I just enjoy a sunset at here. The glass reflect s sun light, sea as well as peoples. Moreover, the curve shape of the glass makes you can see the same image if you stand on the right place. Great Design.
  • This museum is well worth a visit if you have the time.
  • Nice gallery that's worth an afternoon. It's also a good place to watch the sunset from.
  • Went yard and shops just couldn't, even 10 minutes. Meet ready rabbit of the content. From that touch everyone, from only 2 rabbits shine. I want and also in the exhibition.

  • Opening hours from the time from March until September, the sun setting (period after p.m.) that unusual Museum. After sunset will be closed in about 30 minutes. Side glass-fronted hotel enjoys views of Lake Shinji, Shinji Lake is built on west-facing. Collection of the exhibition, during the Edo period is not to be missed. Go in the car 3 hours free parking!
