  • I stopped by Matsuyama shiromi, incidentally. Like in the original, watched TV and then interested in inquiring. It is 400 Yen for adults. Tadao Ando designed building is a triangle? Clever configuration incorporating a "Hill", just by walking is a fun building. Luggage locker at the tour's Yoshida. 100 yen will come back. Akiyama yoshifuru was a force on the on the other hand, the exhibition "clouds over the Hill" theme, boiling Meiji era to run the country, Masayuki brothers, Masaoka Shiki, and writer Shiba Ryotaro that is of course central to the exhibition are displayed real time data, but the interest is also interesting, but inconsequential things fans?. What seems to be not only the fans, something a bit more tinkering may be required.

  • It is unbearable to the fans. I was pleased but maybe not enough. It is good location. Matsuyama Castle after walking. It is time they can be good.

  • The possessed Ryotaro Shiba's masterpiece, the clouds on the Hill remember the rigour that disappointment when the Ferris wheel as was expected. Matsuyama residents know nothing to blistering criticism "it is complete waste of tax money" as you. Viewed from the sky and an equilateral triangle, other post-modern buildings as it looks. However, limited is therefore advantage exhibition space that remained in the impression to each space bridge passage continues endlessly. Make use of the building of strong impression is very inefficient. In addition, exhibits on the contents of the novel "Saka no UE no Kumo name or Crown, while the even less exhibition in also further limited. A multi-faceted exhibition of the greats were produced from Matsuyama Matsuyama history, culture and customs, and museum devoted to focus on what I don't know. It is better you arrive as a "Museum of aggregate to Matsuyama on" position. I think to be disappointed and too conscious and Saka no UE no Kumo. If you are a big fan of "Saka no Ue no Kumo" which is one of the representative works of Ryotaro Shiba, you may be very disappointed at the exhibition of this museum. There are two reasons. One of them is that it is extremely inefficient to use the building as exhibition rooms. You may think that the interior of the building is occupied mostly by aisles. The building seen from above is an equilateral triangle, so it is very unique. However, it seems quite the opposite effect on the exhibition side. Another is that the purpose of the exhibition has not been decided. The exhibition on "Saka no Ue no Kumo" is only a part. In addition, there are exhibitions of the history and climate of Matsuyama city, and great persons from Matsuyama city. However, those exhibits are not directly related to "Saka no Ue no Kumo". This museum is a museum with various exhibits of history and culture in Matsuyama City, you had better think "Saka no Ue no Kumo" as a part of them.

  • Catchability of clouds over the hill where I went. Admission ticket from the vending machines? Should something have no idea I was entry without. But it's okay! Was accepted. Much like Akiyama's article was.

  • Think might go well here and Masaoka Shiki's photos have arrays for example always do!. Like computer graphics from the jam he'd change the angle. It's only 400 Yen. Hourly rate 6% I..

  • Articles about Shiba Ryotaro created the cloud on the slope in the Akiyama brothers, Masaoka Shiki and stage and Matsuyama city are displayed. Close to major route station, so easy access.
