When I visited there was a free exhibition on the ground floor by local artists - Akita Fine Artists Association. The building itself was of interest itself and had been funded by Masaki Hirani and holds many works by Tsuguharu Foujita. The latter painted and...More

The first floor gallery is free of charge but the second floor has a payment of around 1200 JPY. I would recommend this place only if you have extreme interests in art.

It is worth travelling just to see the building, which is by the fascinating architect Tadeo Ando. Despite its unpromising site he has created an amazing cafe/shop area with a mirror pool which seems to lead to the park opposite, even though it is actually...More

I was interested in the building but found it underwhelming. For a start, I can't really fathom the location of the entrance - just doesn't make sense from a user perspective or even architecturally. You are then confronted by the stairs as you enter. But...More

Of the exhibits, the 20-metre long mural was an eye opener. I must have come at the wrong time because the rest of the exhibits were rather forgettable. The beautifully designed building interior made up for the exhibits though.

The museum is very interesting architecturaly, there is a fantastic terrace pool, worth seeing in its own right. The major piece of work is huge and visually stunning. Well worth visiting.

Not expecting much as this is a very rural modern art museum. Was impressed with the exhibit, as well as the architecture inside. Well worth the hour or so it takes to go through.

Its a small art museum, but i always liked such places. Means a lot less people, and gives you ample time to walk around the exhibits. Was there in August so you can see the kanto competitions right next to the museum. Also on the...More

The museum, built by Japanese architect Tadao Ando, is truly stunning. It is a very modern building (opened in 2013).The only set back is that the museum is entirely dedicated to one artist that not many will know - Tsuguharu Foujita, a Japanese-French painter who...More
