This is a museum designed by a famous architect I.M Pei who is known as an architect of a glass pyramid of Louvre Museum. A wide variety of exhibits was displayed, orient to occident and ancient to present, such as a statue of hieroglyph from ancient Egypt to present Japanese Bizen made by a living national treasure. This vast site was in a mountain surrounded by greenery. It took 7 minutes on foot through a well-maintained promenade from the ticket office to the main building. There was also pick-up by electric car between these buildings. The buildings seemed to design based on artwork, each room had a special feature. A design philosophy was presented with an object, it was interesting. I visited there early morning on Sunday, there were more visitors Westerners than Asian. Exhibits were displayed with enough space so I could enjoy appreciate them in silence.

Opened in 1997 amid the abundant natural beauty of the mountains of Shigaraki, Shiga prefecture. The museum was designed by architect I.M. Pei, who is renowned for works such as the glass pyramid at the Louvre in Paris. Is a truly amazing museum especially their collection, I do really like standing Buddha!!

IM Pei’s architecture is well worth the hour’s drive from Kyoto - the contents of the museum are the icing on a masterful design.

Truly amazing museum designed by IM Pei. It does take a while to travel from Kyoto station. But the access to this paradise is worth the effort.
