The museum exhibits works of a photographer Mr. Shoji Ueda. His unique method to lay out the photographic models as surrealist compositional elements with realistic depiction has been internationally acclaimed. The concrete minimalistic-style museum stands out in the middle of idyllic field. It was the interesting contrast. The view of Mt. Daisen from the museum is amazing. It is a small beautiful museum, but deserted. It is a shame that I got to see nobody in and around the museum except receptionists! I hope more people visit the museum...

The museum design attracts us to place a visit. We saw many beautiful photos taken by Mr. Shoji Ueda.

There is photo-shooting spots that attracts many visitors - the water reflection of Mt. Daisen.

While I am not a great fan of photography, but I enjoyed the museum very very much. Other than enjoying looking at the exhibits, we also had fun taking photos with their designated photo spot.

The Shoji Ueda photo museum is located in the countryside. The museum looks a bit like the ark. Gray concrete. It is beautifully located.
Ueda died 23 years ago. His pictures are not that big and mostly in black and white. Many from Sand Dunes. He captured the moment or created a tense set-up.

Regards. An & Nine.

Not only the works, but also the museum and the location of the building were great!
Inside, there was a performance that gave the impression of a teacher who had a childlike heart all his life, which made me feel warm.
This is a highly recommended place.
When I visited Mt. Daisen in March, there was still snow on the ground, so it was even more beautiful.
