    Museum is located on the Azumi-Chihiro 53,500 m² Park. Iwasaki in Chihiro's favorite daughter, and grandchildren back home on high ground in eight visits. Her paintings are like, has bought a calendar each year. Did not know until now, much of her work, her upbringing, history and learned much. Born, seven years in the Taisho period so affected by war, that led to the peaceful anti-war can clearly see. They are out on the picture of the child. And as the picture book Museum have put many other works. More good ones 割ito time. I want to go to here. Also, tot Kuroyanagi Tetsuko Park, serves as Director of the square and spend one day with my family. Admission is adults 800 yen, high school age and under is free. Some discounts for JAF

    It is a museum located in extensive grounds. Trees contain many buildings of the Museum of fine arts, I feel the warmth. Bright is a nice Museum. Child artist Iwasaki Chihiro seems to be making and tenderness you feel. Works for children's books, from small children to elderly people can enjoy. In the Park, tot-Chan and lavender flower garden, pond and square, and the square and tot-Chan also play in this park and train (Nagano electric railway vehicles), sunny day is natural, safe, small children?!

    Iwasaki Art Museum you can enjoy a world of Chihiro. There are small children, wooden toys and picture books for young children. You can also water in the summer garden is a grass and so shallow ponds and waterways. Also, works of art? Also because there is a mirror to place some children there reflected the face many times played ☆ next on-site Totto-Chan library or reproduction in the classroom at the time, and train. You might bring your lunch before the train has a large table and chairs so ♡ on-site café and terrace, kids can take the wooden seesaw. Pudding is delicious heart heart

    Staff employee's repose Hakuba stayed in the previous day's white horse and went, but to be honest, than great location. A huge exhibit admission occurs in the Museum of the history of the author suggests too many places, impressive enough. Exhibition area is photography is prohibited, but otherwise there is an all-you-can-eat photos. Cafe amuse a toddler, and space, library, workshops for children, plenty of. Museum shops are terrible, with awesome size and location. JAF members are allowed admission fee discount because you forgot your card no. Per will apply up to 2. The facility further beside the Museum of fine arts have released free of charge as a vast park. It can come in the only Park in the free space, such as the railcars renovated room and old authors Villa. Other amenities include a large free car park. It was a wonderful facility that can be recommended to everyone. Come to memories of Nagano.
