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.

This is a very interesting museum and includes many Noguchi sculptures and also his part time home for the last about 20 years of his life. Most of the buildings that he incorporated into his compound are from another era and he had them disassembled...More

....this place is a must. It's pricey, and you have to reserve in advance, and it's out of the way. And it affords a wonderful look into the way Noguchi lived and worked in Japan. Lots of stones, in various stages of being worked. Interesting...More
