Designed by world-renowned architect I. M. Pei, Miho Museum houses a collection of rare and ancient artwork nestled in the mountains. Commissioned by wealthy philanthropist (and religious leader) Mihoko Koyama for her private collection, the building largely lies underground--carved into the rocky mountainside and covered with a steel-and-glass roof. Enter by traversing an unusual cable bridge and walking through a shining tunnel. Inside, observe a variety of artifacts from Asia and the Western world. Our Koka itinerary site makes visiting Miho Museum and other Koka attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Miho Museum Reviews
亀岡から車で2時間弱かかりました。連休の真ん中と言う事も有り高速でノロノロ運転。 山の奥に有り少しアクセスが悪いですが、口コミが良かったので早く見たいと思ってました。到着したら入場券を買い（1100円）トンネルをくぐって7分位歩いて目的の場所に着きました。数人が、乗れるバスも出てました。 トンネル内で写メしたい人は歩く事を、お勧めします。館内では桃山時代からの備前焼を展示していました。 more »It took less than two hours by car from Kameoka.

A great day trip from Kyoto. It's a bit long to reach there (1h30 from Kyoto Station) but worth it. Clear direction on their website for access. The bus costs 820¥ one way. The entrance for college student is 760¥.
Fun museum. The food was good, and the tofu was really creamy. I think the nicest part of the museum is the architecture. FYI, there is a video playing in the museum that will tell you about the history of the museum.
