The gardens at the Adachi Museum of Art are some of the most spectacular that I have seen around Japan. While you do have to view it from behind barriers (including glass), I think that this might actually be a benefit since everyone will get better photos without other tourists in the background. The natural landscape of the area really... More

Located in the north-west of Japan near the coast of Shimane Prefecture, this is a real find. We travelled just over two hours by train from Okayama to Yasugi to visit. There's a free shuttle bus from Yasugi train station, but only every hour. Voted the best garden in Japan 12 consecutive years by the Japanese Journal of Gardening (a... More

Adachi Art Museum that I was looking forward to visiting very much left a mixed impression: the artwork exhibited is pleasing but not great. The garden is indeed one of the most beautiful I have ever seen in Japan. However, I was very diasapointed, that it was not possible to walk through the garden, but you had to view it... More

On our way home from Matsue, we stopped in Yasugi Station and took the free shuttle bus to see the Adachi Museum of Art. The museum is also home to a garden heralded as the most beautiful garden in Japan. The garden is extremely beautiful but we were only allowed to view the garden through windows because walking through it... More

Our main reason for visiting Shimane Prefecture was to visit this art museum. We took the train from Kyoto via Okayama on our way to Matsue and stopped off at at Yasugi. From the railway station we took the free shuttle bus out to the museum. At first glance I was disappointed, not what I expected at all. However, once... More

No need to say how fantastic this garden and museum is ... it's been ranked as number for the past 11 years, for a very good reason. The tea shop inside is worth a visit, if you want to spend a moment relaxing, enjoying the beautiful garden and have a cup of tea or coffee. It was a big pot... More

Give yourself time to really explore at your leisure, if you can. There is a lot to see! Not only the gardens, but all the many, many art exhibits. Also, the restaurant is simply EXCELLENT. And be prepared to spend some money in the gift shop. You will want to bring something home.

We spent hours admiring the gardens, from all angles. We even paid 1000 Y per person to drink coffee in a cafe with a garden view. We traveled by train/museum shuttle bus from our base in Matsue. Highly, highly recommended.
