    Yayoi Kusama Yayoi's sweeping the world, only in the presence of the one and only, unique personality and creativity is a huge sculpture called "vision China' welcomes at the entrance. (Flowers are lively and colorful polka-dot pattern is) born in Matsumoto city, she is tormented by hallucinations from a young age, it's immersed in the creative activity in the beginning, and who sent me a great life, a kind. Too much personality from could freely cross production activities to the United States, might be good. There are exhibitions, but epic "red dot" is a ferocious energy and, involuntarily became pinned down. Yamamoto, who worked on background of Japan's anime (d) was 3 exhibition there until 9/18, there is the feeling of old-world Japan, 2002 opening contrasted with the world of Yayoi Kusama, relieved (laughs) so, relatively new and sophisticated building. (Sorry, there were restaurants, cafes, and closed by Bon)

    You can see the Yayoi Kusama's art works also without admission. You can buy Coca-Cola's vending machines are polka-dot art, or even just the toy, so that sense of satisfaction.

    Modern building with a nice permanent collection of Yayoy Kusama. We loved the temporary exhibition of paintings by elderly artists. Great gift shop as well.

    Awesome little museum. The Kusama exhibits were awesome, especially since nobody was really around to break the atmosphere.

Where to stay in Matsumoto

Matsumoto strikes a balance between the old and the new in its accommodations, as it does with most other aspects of its urban design and culture. The area directly around the main train station houses many of the newer options in town, including some large hotels, both basic and luxury, and a couple of smaller, family-run options. The more historic area north of here has hotels and "ryokan" (guesthouses) with a little more history and character, and with the main attractions of the old town on their doorsteps. The surrounding rural area features a number of hotels with "onsen" (traditional Japanese spas) and campsites.
