Teshima Art Museum, Tonosho-cho

(4.5/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
In Teshima Art Museum, admire a single piece of artwork--an ethereal shell-like construction resembling a water droplet at the moment of landing. A vast, white, open space, devoid of pillars and decorations lends an airy feel, while the oval openings on the top allow the sound, light, and wind to interconnect. In addition, water emerges from the ground through the whole day, imitating the museum in miniature form. Contemplate in peace, listen to the soft sounds, and revel in the site's singularity. The cafe serves locally sourced food and drinks. In the souvenir shop, find original books and artwork. To visit Teshima Art Museum on your trip to Tonosho-cho, use our Tonosho-cho vacation builder.

  • A unique experience. Few museums I visited generated me something similar. Architecture nature and art in a perfect community. The entire trip worth it. Get the idea of that is a museum to spend with yourself long moments of peace and contemplation.

  • I won’t categorize here as a museum, I would say this is an art piece connected to the nature. The main exhibit is an oval shaped architecture sitting on the green hillside overlooking the rice terrac...  more »
  • Over the weekend came in the January cold snap went out at night. Was off-guard is the Seto Inland Sea is pretty cold. Since that night in the Toshima minpaku entering open and at the same time. There were already one people thought so cold, so no other customers are not waiting for admission. This is usually linger because the cold was not sharpened senses. I think and other art works of Toshima absolutely exceptional only one and it works. Wind is blowing trees please in doubling the sound of rustling and feel special with Ribbon is lightly and jumpy, gushed water there and drain that just be tired. Looking at word of mouth other people still here nobody season, time to go and answer like I feel. Made my day I was cold or warm autumn weather, what is not should go Gunning, autumn weekends, in early spring? However, Teshima season ferry schedule early in the morning and evening only in the day several. May day is defintely not if you live in the suburbs and difficult. I think it is good to plan the entire trip from of his visit here would first like any process, from the ferry schedule. Personally, of the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (on the day we visited) heart was hit. It does not, managed by Ryue Nishizawa's inspiration from here? And even thought it. As a foreshadowing of the Ryue parallel to Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum (Takamatsu Mure) is interesting. Incidentally the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum reservation is required, because the limited opening day at the same time check good Isamu Garden Museum, ferry schedule might be. (I did)
