  • This is an art museum where the works of Mr. Meinen- are exhibited. There are many prints based on Okinawan folk tales. It's a unique style of painting, and it's fun to watch. The shape of the building was also unique.

  • There was an irresistible picture for hibiscus lovers. There is no unnecessary thing, but it is very three-dimensional. Very kind. Please take a look.

  • Unique, small gallery in an impressive building designed by the artist himself. I wish there was more info about Bokunen-san, maybe more obviously displayed at the entrance area as well so that a baka gaijin like me immediately can see it. On the second floor there is Bokunen's most impressive works, including a huge piece of several meters which I did not see live, but on a youtube video afterwards. The museum shop sells a variety of Bokunen's artwork on postcards, calendars, t-shirts etc., ideal as unique Okinawa souvenirs.
  • A very nice museum and shop highlighting the wood block prints of Okinawan artist Bokunen Naka. Really enjoyed the works and there is a wonderful view up on top of the museum (take the spiral staircase up). A great stop for art in the otherwise touristy American Village.
