  • 司馬遼太郎の代表作『坂の上の雲』に魅入られ、期待していっただけに、実際に観覧した時の落胆は凄まじかったことを覚えています。松山在住の知人も、「あれは完全に税金の無駄遣いだ」と猛批判するのも分かります。 上空から見ると正三角形になっていて、他にはないポストモダンな建築物であるように見えます。しかし、それゆえに展示に活用できるスペースも限定されてしまい、印象に残ったのは、各スペースを繋ぐための通路が延...  more »

  • Good museum
  • The Shiba Ryotaro novel "Saka no UE no Kumo Museum. The building architect Tadao Ando designed by Mr. The content on the content of the novel centering on the Akiyama brothers and Masaoka Shiki. Seems like just the contents of Masaoka Shiki is Matsuyama municipal Shiki Memorial Museum and turnip. I think it is better in my opinion, the contents of the CoCo specializing in the Akiyama brothers. Isn't it better later took shape with the Shiki Memorial Museum? 5/1/2017 first visit

  • 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.
