  • The unusual building of the triangle is interesting. The stairs that float in the air through the atrium run through the air in a straight line. Matsuyama at the Meiji era is well understood.

  • This exhibition recalls the world and times of Ryotaro Shiba's novel "Clouds on the Hill" while touring on slopes with the image of a slope. The exhibition of "Clouds on the Slope" newspaper series 1296 times is a masterpiece. The elder son is half the entrance fee, and it is yen.

  • What a nice museum ! so very like Japanese !! Simple and elegant ~~ And the name of the museum means “ a cloud over the hill “ Don’t you think it’s such a charming name? Just the name of it definitely attracts me I was surprised this is a work of Ando Tadao who is one of my favorite world wide famous architecture we didn’t plan to visit this museum however it’s on the way to Bansuiso It’s a very interesting building ,also very early work of Ando Tadao. We didn’t mind to drop by to have a look . There’s a small cafe inside of museum. No charge to have a look and you can have a sip of Japanese tea while you are admiring this museum
