Tanimura Art Museum (Gyokusuien Gardens)


You can also enjoy the Gyokusuien Garden, a Japanese Garden

  The museum features the artwork of Japan’s greatest wood sculptor, Sawada Seiko. The museum was designed by Murano Togo, a master of architecture, around a motif of the deserts of the Silk Road. Adjoined to the museum is the Gyokusuien Garden, a vast Japanese garden opened in 1981. The gardens use the natural background to evoke a scene of two rivers flowing from the mountains in a serene, secluded setting.
