  • Stopped, and went on a drive trip to Chevron, but happened to the Yamagata Museum of art paintings of the Impressionist school is quite comprehensive. While part of the Yoshino gypsum collection is permanent, and I like a Monet painting times background painter and that drew reminiscent of nature and society where the great thought. Admission is 500 yen and cheaper (permanent exhibition), the parking was free.

  • An art museum that has a nice collection of charming works (including a pretty collection of Impressionist works by Renoir, Monet, Manet, etc.). I am very puzzled by the zany contemporary art and unfortunately for me there was not bad, but there was in return too many works fine and delicate. Admission is 1,000 yen.

  • Painting exhibition of the Impressionist school principal had Yoshino gypsum collection exhibition just homegrown companies that collected over three generations. Impressionism is not of Chagall's works are 13 points and I was surprised. Because Paris did not watch so lot of Chagall and Yamagata in Japan. It was a collection exhibition is much more impressive than famous art exhibition in Tokyo.
