  • As a photographer traveling through Japan this was one of the few galleries I stopped in. Cost is about 500 yen. We spent about 30-45 mins here.Its a small business run by a family so I was glad it went to the right people. It is down a small ally in central Gora. There is a coffee shop at the bottom with indoor and outdoor seating. The gallery is in the house in the back and is two story. When I visited to was mostly pictures taken near by of Mt. Fuji. Many large prints on metal. Worth a quick stop. Also had materials on other galleries and things about photography in Japan
  • The gardens are extraordinary. Large rocks, a cascading stream, moss lawns tended carefully by hand. Shrubs and trees arranged into a delightful scene. The tea house is a serene place to view the gardens while enjoying refreshment. The museum is 5 large rooms over 2 floors, mostly displaying pottery dating back hundreds of years. No context, explanation, or 'all singing and dancing' multimedia like people want these days, but interesting and often beautiful objects worth seeing. There is a smaller museum hosting more pottery and some historical information about the founder of the museum.
