    You can enjoy 10 minutes I'm small. Configuration, such as Ali, wall, building, outside exhibition of horses lined up in the Park across the road, of course, Kusama Yayoi's work is a lot of fun. I could enjoy the art appreciation mood everyday "art" out of touch, with indoor exhibits, and to like me too. It might be nice to receive a sandwich made from local products in the hotel's Café.

    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.

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.
