    I think that is not a famous architect who designed museums in both appearance and Interior. Only problem is location. Far to walk from the train station is located in a large park in Morioka station West exit, sushi, is bleak anyway. Shops and cafes in the area for the Museum of fine arts is located along the bypass. Museum of fine arts on the way to eat or tea can not go quickly by car is feeling the. Enjoyed this just fine so I soaked in the memories of the exhibition's art round-trip walk to enjoy the Museum. Special exhibitions of Kawabata Yasunari's collection of art and the art of the painter kaii Higashiyama, real nice.

    Morioka station West exit of sightseeing buses and taxis are the best. Central Park many cultural and sports facilities in the Center, behind the Museum of fine arts at Iwate volcano overlooking the majestic figure. Building a simple appearance, the inside has a sense of openness. Colours of the overwhelming power of the "self-portrait with red eyes" exhibition of yorozu was a surprise, spur of the moment. In addition, Funakoshi yasutake permanent work was impressive.

Where to stay in Morioka

Look to the main train station for the most modern accommodations Morioka, with popular business hotels offering simple rooms, restaurants, and pools. Farther to the east, things get a little more characterful and atmospheric in traditional Japanese ryokans. Riverside options draw lots of visitors, while side-street guesthouses and hostels provide good options for budget-conscious travelers.
