  • As can be seen from the perspective of the child exhibits and the child-friendly facilities, such as the "children's room" is equipped with. Some of the hand touching the read is possible, books etc. Azumi-Chihiro Park that features a large lawn. Because you can re-enter the children get bored Museum outside can play. Mont Blanc train Park library's large-sized books. Summer it can also play a little.

  • A 30 minutes walk from Shinano-Matsukawa station. Whats the Scones in the book Café in the hotel. Coupled with the seasonal Apple jam and whipped cream, and very helpful. Invited to the cheerful calm, outdoors, but an idyllic landscape was very relaxing. You want to come again.

  • Really pretty surroundings with really pretty watercolour paintings
  • 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.

  • I went had a ticket. Museum of fine arts itself solid and with plenty and Nice. Fit had seasonal exhibits. Placement of the picture. Watching wasn't so much like the original feel listless child Chihiro's dismal follow Chihiro's life and fell in love. Was seen to indicate you want to return the original carved seal, black Princess-Sanso, photographs (paste how to the albums too), filled with love of private suits, bags, son, Takeshi, too. The wardens not to each room. Also in the picture is so closely watched was happy. Everyone kept a Manor, was watching. Work the vine on the field at dusk in the last scene when they '' re vine in the works of others to fly all the way (is the white horse of suho-suekichi Akaba) remained very strong. Garden and Totto-Chan of related works are featured. Totto-Chan is so like to see your wallet at falling into place! Amazing! This is! It is better so many time was 3 hours from 2. You want to go again. 11 is closed during winter. Like to redecorate.

  • Spacious lawn in a park on a nice Museum. Barrier-free and being thorough, easy-to-enter either infants or elderly. In fact, many saw the people in wheelchairs. In no other museum can take a NAP!? Iwasaki Chihiro's illustrations and words from thought to was deeply impressed by. Sketch to Takeo's son and hot moments breasts I saw the tears. Feel the love that me pretty mad, beyond the words and didn't move for a while. I became a fan.
