Teshima Art Museum, Tonosho-cho

4.6
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.

  • The art of the island is much richer and more specific than I thought, and the best of all is the beauty of the island. Although the United States of America is not big, but the whole person was also filmed, just silently watching the flow of water droplets, looking at the scenery outside the big hole, listening to the outdoor birds chirping, the state of mind is so peaceful! Sit on the flat and give me a very special experience. Outdoor lawns and walking trails are also fascinating.

  • From the port can direct navigation walk to the Museum of Fung Island, a glance can see the sea. I am in melancholy so big rain, the art museum will open, mended friends to inform the rainy day of the museum is more special. The Rain Art Museum, like nature to the mother added a special emotion, when the sunny in the pavilion can see the blue sky is not a bird across, when the rainy day in the museum, see bundles of rain from the sky descending, gathered together again into a piece, you can stand and sit and see the flow of water changes, every moment never repeat, When I lay sideways on the ground, with one eye focused on the small water droplets gathering energy, slowly become large and round, breaking through the surface tension, began to flow away, which is power. Walk out of the museum can go to the café next to, the same shape Mini, to meet the needs of the museum can not be photographed, here are the pastries are Fung Island Art Museum modelling, special Q, but also can buy some surrounding items.

  • This museum was a highlight of our visit to the area. With only one artwork within an amazing piece of architecture, it is most definitely worth an unhurried visit.  more »

  • The most mesmerizing this I have seen in my entire life. About taking pictures: I think it's the artist's intent that you be fully present; taking pictures will detract from your experience. There's no way you can capture it digitally anyway. I saw people taking pictures and actually felt sorry for their loss! Just stow your camera and take pictures with your heart. You will never forget this place.
  • A must visit. I wouldn't recommend looking much up about the place but just visit. It serenity and simplicity is stunning.
  • A must visit! One of the highlights of my trip in Japan! I had the most calm and relaxing time. The whole experience makes you just want to contemplate and stay silent.
  • Unbelievable, transcendent experience. This place blurs the line between museum and art. I don't know if it could exist in a place other than Japan where people have the utmost respect for their surroundings. Without spoiling the surprise of what lies within, I found it one of the most absorbing and thought provoking artworks I've ever encountered. Who would have thought such a simple concept could lead to such complexity? In this way it mirrors the wabi sabi concept of Japanese culture where simply following nature leads to great craftsmanship and depth. The work made me think of evolution, karma, spiritual development. I found myself emotionally bound up in what was going on before me, it was surreal. You must go and experience this if you can; you will walk the winding path out of that fantastic domed enclosure a different person.
  • The museum is a fusion of art and architecture. Is a place where you can spend the entire day astonished by what's happening inside (of course I don't want to tell what there is inside). Absolutely a Sanaa masterpiece
