An eclectic group of mostly contemporary Japanese artwork. This is a limited collection that will take only 30-60 minutes to absorb. Our party were charmed by it an purchased several reproductions.

This museum has a lovely selection of art and fantastic views out over Lake Ashi. It also has a lounge area where you can sit and admire those views.

As others have noted, much of the art work in this museum was created using shavings of precious minerals that are more vibrant and longer-lasting tban oil or watercolor paintings. Highly recommended for a visit!
