It does it well. The right mix of garden, architecture and Japaense art in a beautiful background setting so they complement one another, and the aesthetics for each become clear. I've seen many Japanese gardens but this is the best. It's been voted so for 15 consecutive years. Sit and enjoy the several different gardens. Access is easy with free... More

I positively drooled over the gardens at this Museum of Art - simply stunning. Would be beautiful any time of the year, but were particularly lovely at the height of the autumn colours in November. And there is a fine art museum as well! Somewhat off the beaten path, but definitely worth a detour. Make sure you have spare batteries... More

This is a sublime garden, but you can only look at it through glass windows. There's no walking path. I am not sure what the art exhibitions are normally like, but the one we saw was very disappointing. Having said that, you go for the highly manicured garden. There are two cafes, so you can drink coffee and meditate on... More

It’s a bit of a hike to get to Adachi Museum of Art. There are regular free minibuses (20 min) from Yasugi station, but that’s right out in the sticks, not far from Matsue. On my way to that lovely city, I made the effort, having seen the ‘Japan’s Best Garden’ tag, & I have to say it was a... More

the art pieces in the museum are pretty unique. the paintings have a distinct style that seems to complement the stunning garden within the compound. if one wasn't told that this is an art museum, they would have easily been mistaken that the garden was the main draw. the zen styled garden is beautifully landscaped and maintained. it would have...

This garden is much better in person, the pictures online don't begin to convey the beauty of these gardens. This is a must see!

I was attracted to travel to the Adachi Museum on account of the wonderful gardens surrounding it which are viewed from various windows and vantage points throughout the museum. I was not disappointed at all by the perfection of the gardens and an added bonus was the wonderful art and pottery collections which are beautifully displayed. My own favourite was... More

This is a chance to see the side of Japan you hope to see when you arrive. A unique experience that we will never forget and wish to repeat in the different seasons of the year.

We were based in Matsue, so coming over to this museum took us less than an hour. 20 mins by train to Yasugi station and then a 20 mins free shuttle ride. The gardens were beautiful, jaw-dropping pristine and beautiful. Pictures that we took make it seem as though we are standing behind a poster cos it's perfection almost make... More

An unforgetable garden. Unfortunately you cannot walk in it but every window you look through you see a different exquisite vista. Not one bird did I see nothing flying around at all. The childrens book illusrations are particularly lovely in the museum and the Midori coffee shop has the BEST coffee I have ever tasted.
