Chihiro Art Museum Azumino Reviews
前に来た時はまだ会館まもないころで、展示室が増築される前でした。 まだ公園もそれほど広くなく、こじんまりとしていた頃です。 今回約20年ぶりに訪れて公園の広さに驚きました。 公園では親子が楽しく過ごし、ちひろ美術館の暖かな雰囲気が大きく広がった気がします。 美術館は約20年の時を感じさせないほど綺麗に保たれ、周囲の山並みと呼応する屋根が緩やかに繋げる大らかな空間は今も健在でした。 内藤さんの建築感... more »When I came to the front, there was still no hall, and it was before the exhibition room was built. The park was not so large yet, and it was a small time. I visited this for the first time in about 20 years and was surprised at the size of the park. Parents and children enjoyed the park, and the warm atmosphere of the Chihiro Museum of Art spread greatly. The museum was kept so beautiful that it didn't feel like it was around 20 years ago, and the large space that the surrounding mountains and the roof sat in response to it were still alive and well. In a space where you can fully enjoy naito-san's architectural feeling, I stayed for a long time in comfort.
信州旅行に出かけた際に安曇野に宿泊したので、足を運びました。広々とした公園になっていて、その敷地内にありました。いわさきちひろさんの、ほんわかした優しい色使いに癒されました。広くはないけれど、カフェやショップも併設されていました。 more »When I went on a trip to Shinshu, I stayed in Azumino, so I went there. It was a spacious park and was on the site. I was healed by the gentle use of the color that was warm and warm. It was not large, but there were also cafes and shops.
This is a good place for local history Buffs and fans of ちひろーさん。 It is particularly good to see the old train and the classroom kept restored for future Generations - as well as the library and actual classroom . Anybody interested in local Japanese history should enjoy this place It also has a good-sized play area for children as well as a historically based souvenir gift shop and some food and refreshments are available. Obviously I have not mentioned the art which can speak for itself and its time period And feeling or emotion.
Quiet, cute small museum with a wonderful little park. The artwork inside is mostly children related. The interviews and watercolors of Hiroshima survivors is quite powerful. I wish they had been translated to English. The artwork outside is not extensive, but is impressive. There is even a soft serve ice cream stand in the parking lot. It was quite tasty and the very nice lady who runs the stand is also a dairy Farmer who confirmed that it is made from the fresh milk from her farm.
