I was first taken to visit Atami with some friends from Tokyo. We travelled by train to this tiny seaside town during the cherry blossom season, perfect. At first glance the museum is somewhat stark, very impressive, but outwardly rather cold. The entrance has long escalators which take one into the depths of the museum. Much of the artwork on...

This museum boasts grandiose architecture, especially for a town as small as Atami. There aren't that many exhibits, but a featuring exhibit when I visited was a curated selection of Mt.

You can feel the spirit of a true Japanese whether through old pictures. Art objects. Thriving beautifully.

the museum building itself is very nice, high &long escalators leadin to the main show room. I'm thankful that they provide English explanations on some of the main exhibits. Most art pieces are Japanese & Chinese n very few western arts. But the plaza outside offer very good view of the Atami bay during good weather

Loved the Henry Moore King and Queen sculptures in the garden, sets the mood for the whole modernist approach, though the traditional is not at all negelcted, as they had a Noh theatre on display. Pity that the enthusiastic lady guide cold only explain the... More

Visited there on a hot humid summer day. Surely you can hide from it at that spacious museum. The number of exibitis is not that big but worth seeing.
