    Miyagi Sendai-shi Taihaku-ku Moniwa Matsuba 1-2
    "A 15-minute drive from the Sendai-minami interchange and a 20-minute drive from the Sendai-Miyagi interchange. This art museum is also located right next to the ""Matsuba"" bus stop. As its name states, this museum displays kaleidoscopes and also holds kaleidoscope making classes. The museum displays a wide array of kaleidoscopes, from huge kaleidoscopes to antique examples to kaleidoscopes made by modern artists. Some of the museum's kaleidoscopes can also be used to take pictures. The museum's short kaleidoscope making classes are fun, easy, and take just 10 to 30 minutes. The museum shop sells inexpensively priced kaleidoscopes to true kaleidoscope masterpieces."

    This is worth the trip from Sendai! We were impressed with the creativity and diversity of kaleidoscopes. Really an international collection! Great for adults with it without children!

    仙台に長期滞在の予定があったので日本最古の現存学舎として著名な旧有備館及び庭園と一緒に見てきました。私は歴史が好きで主に中世史関連の展示会に目が無いのですが、刀剣類には人並みの興味しか無くそんなに詳しくなかったのですが大変楽しませていただきました。 刀剣の源流、特に日本刀とはどう言った経緯で生まれどのように広まったかがよくわかる展示内容で展示品の8割以上が刀剣です。原初の刀剣であり蝦夷の生活必需品...

    JR塩釜駅から徒歩10分くらいの住宅街の中にある小さな美術館です。 作品は、彫刻の作品が中心でした。また、建物自体が特徴的な形をしたアートになっています。小高い場所にあるため美術館からの眺めも良くお勧めの場所です。

    競馬ファンとしては、「島川美術館」じゃなくて、タイトルのネーミングにしてほしかった(^^) なんたって当館創設者は、健康食品会社の大社長さんにして、中央競馬の馬主さん。 そして所有馬には「トーセン」の冠語がつくので有名なかたですから。 「トーセンミュージアム」って馬も、いかにもいそうですが、馬名は9文字までなので実在しません。ならば馬と同様に愛してやまない美術品コレクションを展示した美術館に命名...

    Miyagi Pref. Tomeshi Toyomamachiteraike Sakurakouji 88-1

    地元出身女流作家を讃える美術館。「髙倉勝子美術館開館10周年記念特別企画展」を見に行きました。入館料200円。周辺施設同様ペイペイ支払可。陸軍中尉であった夫の任地広島で被爆し全身負傷、奇跡的に助かった背景を踏まえた「原爆の図」は必見。丸木夫妻とは別の意味で原爆の地獄絵が展開されています。美術作品等の写真撮影はご遠慮願いますとの張り紙。トイレの温水洗浄便座も真面に機能してイイな、クスッ。

    Miyagi Pref. Sendaishi Aoba-ku Higashikatsuyama 2-20-15

    住宅街の中にある小さな美術館です。メジャーな作品を展示するのではなく、若手が自らの作品を発表する場に使われているようで、入場料は無料の場合が多いようです。ゆっくり作品を見られるし、作家本人と作品について話ができるところが気に入りました。また、建物自体も故中本誠司による作品で、非常に凝ったつくりになっています。このように現代美術が好きな人にはとても居心地のよい空間であると思われます。

    秋保の温泉街からちょっと距離がありますが(5キロほど)、自然たっぷりの環境の中に建つ、宮城県在住の画家さんの個人美術館です。 人形館の方は、亡くなられた奥様のコレクションで、世界中の珍しい人形が展示されています。 ただし、個人美術館ゆえ、営業時間が不規則だったりするので、事前にホームページで確認してから訪問しましょう。中庭もとても素敵でした☆

Lying along the northeastern coast of Japan, Miyagi prefecture is home to lashings of natural parks, oysters, and hot springs. While the bustling city of Sendai offers some simple city entertainment, it's the Matsushima islands that deserve the most attention, having boosted the prefecture's reputation as one of Japan's most scenic views.
