  • To those who love the Kusama Yayoi teacher gutto Kuru to objects outside. Just because art is hung with many outside the Museum, walk just outside looks fun!

  • Nishizawa of Mamoru design, so in order visitors. Was certainly pleasant for children is fine most of the exhibits so pleasant. Because it doesn't have any air corridor is anyway hot and tight.

  • Am not sophisticated in art and stuff. But this place is nice. I walked home feeling better than when I arrived (if that even mean anything). :p
  • 1000¥ admission with free parking for a small but interactive art exhibit. No photography permitted inside. Be sure to dress in comfortable clothing you can move around in as some displays require you to climb onto furniture to view the true display. They also have a coffee shop and gift shop.
  • Very small but good for what is. No pictures allowed for most of museum though
  • Nice museum
  • I like this small museum. They have a taste, I think.

Where to stay in Towada

The main accommodations of Towada lie in the downtown area, sitting along the main thoroughfares and narrower streets to the east of the central park. The mixed bag of hotels generally offers Western-style rooms in luxury, standard, and budget options. Most visitors to Towada, however, will look to stay somewhere in the national park, primarily in the areas surrounding hot springs. Look close to the lake and up in the Hakkoda mountains for some of the most characterful spa hotels.
