What a nice museum ! so very like Japanese !! Simple and elegant ~~ And the name of the museum means “ a cloud over the hill “ Don’t you think it’s such a charming name? Just the name of it definitely attracts me I was surprised this is a work of Ando Tadao who is one of my favorite world wide famous architecture we didn’t plan to visit this museum however it’s on the way to Bansuiso It’s a very interesting building ,also very early work of Ando Tadao. We didn’t mind to drop by to have a look . There’s a small cafe inside of museum. No charge to have a look and you can have a sip of Japanese tea while you are admiring this museum
This museum encourages me to read Sakanouenokumo again.
