  • It's hard to describe the Tanimura Art Museum without sounding hyperbolic... It's something that needs to be experienced. Seiko Sawada's beautifully sculpted Buddhist iconography merged seamlessly into the organic, almost sensuous curves of Togo Murano's distinctive architecture. It's a unique fusion of two of Japan's greatest artistic minds, the likes of which you would never expect to find in a town as small as Itoigawa. If you're in Itoigawa and not visiting this museum, you're seriously missing out. The adjoining Gyokusuien Garden can be enjoyed from a small pavilion which also features a cafe and gift shop. The tables in the pavilion are carved from massive slabs of Itoigawa's famous jade.
  • I was surprised when I first came to see what a mysterious museum it was. This museum is not normal. I think that it is not close to the secret of this museum if you do not experience the expression of the inside of the museum at that time while changing the season and the time zone by carrying the foot many times perhaps. Japan, I think it's the world's most famous museum. I was surprised when I came for the first time that it was such a magical museum. This Museum is different from ordinary. I think that I can not bring it closer to the secret of this museum unless I visit many times and change the seasons and T IME zones and experience the expression inside the art museum from time to time. I think that it is a museum that boasts to the world.
