    Aomori Pref. Towadashi Nishinibanchou 10-9
    Located on Kanchogai-dori Avenue in Towada City, the Towada Art Center exhibits the artistic works of internationally-renowned artists like Yayoi Kusama and Ron Mueck. Intended to be a “facility for providing new experiences through art”, this center functions as a central pillar for the “Arts Towada Project” to make all of Kanchogai-dori Avenue function like a big art museum. It includes a café and activity spaces, offering chances to revitalize Towada City as an art town.

    The Towada Modern Art Museum is one of the very unique art museums and a hidden gem in the city not so well known. I happened to have an opportunity to visit it on the day arriving at Hachinohe. Its...

    Aomori Pref. Aomorishi Yasuta Chikano 185
    Opened in 2006, this art museum primarily houses and displays local cultural art of Aomori City and Aomori Prefecture. It is characterized by its unique architecture whereby the building is combined with the adjoining Sannai-Maruyama Jomon Era ruins. In the center of the museum is the Aleko Hall, where one can see in one glance all 4 masterpieces of the master Marc Chagall's 4 backdrops from the ballet ''Aleko'' until March 2021 (proposed). A broad range of standard exhibit items include western art, Japanese style paintings, modern art, and works by local artists. Take the city bus from Aomori Station and disembark at Kenritsu Bijutukan-Mae bus stop.

    Because of the lack of snow, ski resorts were slow to open. But we were glad we came here. The highlight was the four huge stage backdrops painted by Chagall for the ballet “Aleko”.

    Aomori Kamikita-gun Shichinohemachi Arakumanai 67-94
    An art museum opened in 1994 to honor the work of Shichinohe Town, Aomori Prefecture-born Western-style painter Uichi Takayama (1908-1999). The museum's standing exhibit primarily contains works submitted to the Nikaten art exhibition, which served as a space for Takayama to reveal his works throughout his career; as well as a large number of sketches which served as the foundation of the artist's creation activities. The museum also holds special exhibitions around twice a year.

    この1月に出かけた際には改装中で未遂。 今回も雪中行軍だったが、宇一の他にもいろんな作品を愉しめた。 更に、七戸の小中学生の展覧会も併設され、じっくり見て回った。 近頃の小学生も極めてレベル高いんですねぇ。

    中間に観客席と水面を配置して建物が取り囲んでいて見る角度によって異なる風景が現れます。建物自体のメンテナンスが行き届かない感があり少し残念な感じでした。

Aomori Areas

around-area-map

Centuries-old stories of samurai at Kakunodate and the remains of millennia-old archaeological sites including the likes of Isedotai invite history buffs to delve into Aomori’s fascinating history. As the most northern prefecture on the Japanese mainland, Aomori enjoys a cooler climate, which makes it a welcome escape from the southern cities for combining castles, art galleries, and summer festivals with the great outdoors.
