  •  Kirishima Art Forest, an open-air art museum with high artistic art in the nature of Kirishima, opened in a plateau of about 700 meters above the height of Mt. Kurino, north of Kirishima Mountain Range.  I took it to my friend who lives in Kagoshima. In the vast garden, 23 unique works, large and small, by renowned artists from japan and abroad, are exhibited. When you see unique works by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, you will want to stop. These works, made of various materials such as stones, iron, and plastics, are displayed in a well-balanced manner, taking advantage of the original topography and trees, and can be viewed by touching and sitting in hand while strolling along the garden path of about two kilometers. There is also an art hall with a smart look.

  • My second visit to the Museum. It's a great experience, walking the grounds and through the forest to see all of the sculptural works. The outside stuff doesn't seem to change, but Special Exhibits inside arrive every couple of months. I've enjoyed both that I've experienced, immensely. Well worth the drive off the beaten path to get there!!
