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.
