Stopping by chance at Takamatsu we learned that there is nearby a museum of the famous designer Noguchi. This is definitely worth a visit but a bit out of the way. The museum is more about his sculpture work, it really displays some great pieces...More

This place is the Japanese home of Noguchi as well as his atelier, and it's simply stunning. It's one of the must-visit places in Takamatsu, unless you're totally allergic to art (which would be a shame). Note that you must make a reservation before your...More

This museum is a little of the beaten track, about 30 minute taxi ride from downtown Takamatsu but well worth the effort. The Museum has many Noguchi exhibits to see and the garden site is also very interesting.

Walking in his landscaped garden is like moving in and around a gigantic sculpture. Very moving to see his studio with finished and unfinished work.

If it wasn't for the hassle of the booking in advance, it would be really well worth it. The entrance fees are also a little expensive. However, the house is AMAZING and worth seeing. The surroundings are also amazing.

Visiting Noguchi's studio, house and garden, and seeing his works displayed together was a special experience and worth the trip to Takamatsu.

Visited the Noguchi studio on an extended art/culture tour to Japan in 2005. It is a lovely, serene place, with many of the sculptor's works on site. Just wander around and enjoy the ambience and creative spirit of the place. There is a nice gift...More
