  • On the shores of Lake Shinji, Japan, buildings are very beautiful. You can enjoy Lake Shinji from inside the glass-walled Museum. So many water-themed works. Also it's famous Shinji Lake rabbit of the sculpture outside the building. Visit lucky bunnies in cute rabbit 12 especially that second touch and otherwise, and you touching, but only where the rabbit forced of the clam shell. Or anything with a clam and further increase the power of the rabbit. Exhibits enough to spot luck, it looks strange that even though the firm has touched second bunnies. Also on the outside and decorated with works and works well enjoy Lake Shinji.

  • 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.
