Small and cozy art gallery where you can see the artworks including several masterpieces of the great Japanese-style painter from 20th century, Higashiyama Kaii. Has a small gift shop. The building was designed by a famous architect named Taniguchi Yoshio. Adjacent to the time-honored temple, Zenkoji.

We had a funny experience, as the lady at the reception showed us the brochure with a particular exhibition that was starting that day. She showed us the way to viewing. But then she chased after us, and took us to a large room that was empty. We then went to another large room, also empty. Using Google Translate she confirmed the exhibition was closed. It was worth it for the experience. When we left, she was showing another visitor the exhibition print out....The Zenkoji Temple is very close by and was worth a visit if you want a backup plan.

We experience the first snow fall here. This place is amazing, very beautiful and clean. The forests are untouched and snowfall was the softest and powdery! Along the way we stopped at the rest and relax point along the highway, it was perfectly clean, and a good spot for photography!

I visited this museum to join a special exhibition on Peter Drucker collection on Japanese art. The collection consists of great master pieces of Japanese paintings in 15- 20th century, which we all loved. The booklet of this special exhibition captures well this great collection and it certainly worth buying. This museum stands just next to Zenkoji. I highly recommend visiting this place together with your Zenkoji visit. Their regular and permanent exhibition for Higashiyama Kaii is definitely worth viewing. His great pieces of paintings on the nature of Nagano will impress you for sure.
