  • 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.
