    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!

    久々に塩釜神社を訪問したので、帰りに「菅野美術館」へ行ってみました。 医療法人の開設者である菅原氏の個人のコレクションがメインの、小さな美術館ですが、建物がとても個性的で外観を眺めるだけでも十分訪問の価値があります♪

    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。

    広瀬通りと晩翠通りが交差した角地、「白松がモナカ」の本店の近くにある画廊です。 仙台市内の画廊としてはかなり規模が大きくて、展示されている作品の数も多めです。 ビルの1階に入っているので、比較的入りやすいと思います。

    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。

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.
