  • Very nice gallery. Or stone work in the vast grounds, pond, flower garden, bench, one day leisurely. Museum 1, freedom can come and go. You can also rest in the wooden deck was placed on the terrace playing on the lawn, or work in or chairs. Entrance fee is reasonable and helpful. I think that had spare time becomes a museum an even more wonderful memories.

  • I went to the Chihiro Art Museum had much hope. Park and the Museum of fine arts are integrated in the world made so far was impressive. Chihiro's works and other picture book painter's work is assigned to the staff. Especially liked tot freshmen backpacks lined up, and walk by the window I also had read, so while recalling the contents of the book also train school looked.

  • Chihiro Art Museum Azumino gently blends into the scenery of Shinshu. And in a loose connection of the outside. The continuous gable roof is beautiful. Iwasaki Chihiro friendly paintings and comfortable space is open from the hectic day, is perfect for summer.

  • Really pretty surroundings with really pretty watercolour paintings
  • ' 16 to visit. Iwasaki Chihiro world to enjoy. Of course work taken NG. Or 3-4 hours if you're decent looking as big as take. So I went to Bon souvenir shop and Cafe was crowded with people. This year is just raining in the afternoon, so that may be due. During the building period divides the area. Still Totto-Chan of illustrations is very famous. It is especially this area were people. Whats the cake because I was tired a little bit, but make sure that crowds out, pretty much waited in the car. Contact: visit places during that time and was not planned as suffering up there.

  • Vast areas are generous atmosphere Museum of art. Depicting life in and touch children, can experience the work piece. Reproduction of the train was a Tomoe Gakuen school classroom, or "sea of mountain" there can demonstrate the kids corner. Novel "tot window-Chan" I recommend coming to look at it from will.

  • Here since we opened, often visited the North Alps back to milk rivers flow next to the hotel there is only one picture is most foul. It is not losing standard is a standard that can be recommended to anyone, just explore the Park and around the Park no longer allowed in the Museum of fine arts, at least enjoy the 10-minute spots.

  • Iwasaki Chihiro's wild Chihiro Art Museum Azumino I in plenty of books that have been exhibited exhibited paintings in addition to a child's mind will be reminiscent. Also, the seasonal flowers is vast, enjoyed walking. Museum is prohibited, but can be taken private park. So I went to summer snow of winter I don't know. Come and visit when going to the Azumino region we recommend that you want.
