Shimane Art Museum Reviews
松江市宍道湖畔にたつ美術館です。訪れたときは、『北斎展』が催されていましたが、常設展の絵画、彫刻、写真なども、十分見ごたえがありました。屋上に上がれば、宍道湖を見渡すことができ、美しい風景を楽しめました。 more »It is the Tatsu Museum of Art on the shore of Lake Shinji, Matsue City. When I visited, there was a Hokusai exhibition, but the paintings, sculptures and photographs of the permanent exhibition were also impressive. If you go up to the roof, you can see lake Shinji and enjoy the beautiful scenery.
夕日を見に行きましたが、あいにくこの日はお天気がイマイチで見られませんでした。 でも、とっても綺麗でのんびりとした雰囲気のいいところでした。 うさぎの石像もかわいい！ more »I went to see the sunset, but unfortunately the weather was not good on this day. But it was a nice place with a very beautiful and laid-back atmosphere. The stone image of the rabbit is also cute!
Very beautiful sunset. Love the tranquility and the peaceful atmosphere. The collection is good. I love Hokusai's work a lot, so really enjoyed the visit.
Pity that my visit to there is a cloudy day and fail to see the famous sun set. However, it is a nice place to stay if you are interested for art. I like the 12 rabbit outside the museum.
