    There is a gallery and an open factory where you can take a walk around and watch people create all those beautiful knives. They are all a very friendly bunch so you often can take a closer look.
    It's free and open all day! strongly recommend to have a look

    Visited with a friend. Wonderful quiet time surrounded by art. Had a nice outdoor path with large artwork against the backdrop of trees. Parking fee for each entrance, next t it's entrance.

    A nice restaurant within its ground an accessible without museum ticket too. There is a separate cafe in the lounge area as well.

    Fascinating building by Argentinean architect Emilio Ambasz - a precursor of 'green' architecture. Ambasz's trademark style is a combination of buildings and gardens, which he describes as 'green over grey' according to Wikipedia. That philosophy is very well-demonstrated in ACROS located in the town center; next to the Naka River, just a little downstream from the famous Hakata Canal City.

    The interior is reminiscent of the great hotel atriums of architect John Portman. Very monumental but a little cold. While the front facade is fairly conventional and unmemorable, the rear facing Tenjin Central Park is visually striking, unique and most iconic. We could not resist climbing the lushly forested stepped garden when we found out it was fully accessible and free. Unfortunately we did not make it to the very top as that was only opened till 4pm. Nonetheless the view of the city was still quite spectacular given that the city skyline is not very high rise. Observed the setting sun from there. It was a very pleasurable experience.

    Other than golfers and trekkers, most folks who come to Ogawa-machi make their way to the Saitama Traditional Crafts Center. Even the Emperor and Empress have come. It's many things rolled into one: a place where you can make your own Japanese paper or watch the pros do it, a gallery with various small-but-good exhibits running simultaneously, a permanent display of the traditional crafts and businesses of Ogawa-machi, and an excellent (though a little pricy) gift shop. TIP: If you're a local, or can lay your hands on the Ogawa-machi newsletter, you and your group can enter free of charge, saving Y300 per person.

    Across the plaza from the display area is the cafeteria and coffee shop. They're in the back, beyond the farmers' market sales area. Delicious freshly-made buckwheat noodles (soba) and thicker wheat noodles (udon) are served for lunch in a spacious dining room. TIP: For just Y250, between 10-11:00 am and 2-4:00 pm, there's an all-you-can-drink time during which you serve yourself from soft drink or coffee machines.

    It's easy to get there and get back to Ogawa-machi Station using the local bus. It's just a few minutes' ride in each direction and both bus stops are close to the center itself. Take the Park Hill bus and get off at the stop named after the center.

    This gallary presents the fantastic works of photographer Maeda Shinzo, who took pictures of the area around Biei during different seasons and weathers - you can really appreciate the different views in different seasons around the place. it's small but a great place to stop at.

    It's a small but nice gallery, 10 minutes walk from the JR station. Along the road, you won't miss the those ninja statues, temple and the Clock, so it would be a very nice and leisure walk.

    This was a nice shop with a wide selection of Hakata Dolls. They varied from very reasonable to costly depending on your preferences. This is not a big shop but it is nicely laid out and has a nice selection. Definitely worth a stop.

    We stopped at this small museum while visiting Wajima. The museum has some very nice displays of laquerware and also does a nice job of explaining how these pieces are made. This is worth a stop if you are in Wajima as laquerware is something that is very important to the history and culture of the town.

    My wife and I love cats, so when we were in the Hagi area and heard of this temple we had to stop! It was pretty easy to find and there is parking. The temple itself is not huge, but fully decorated with all things cats! The stairs are lined with cute wooden cats and there are cat decorations everywhere, truly fascinating. Unfortunately, we were unable to go inside because of the virus, so we hope to come again when it is open and we did not see any real cats, it was in the afternoon so they were probably sleeping. We will definitely come back again at some point but I feel this is a unique temple and well worth a visit.
