    Gunma Pref. Tatebayashishi Hinatachou 2003
    "This museum is located in Tatebayashi City, Gunma Prefecture, approximately 20 minutes' walk from the Tobu Isesaki Line's Tatara Station. It primarily collects works by artists such as François Pompon's ""L'Ours Blanc"" and Yoshio Fujimaki's ""Jonuma no Fuyu"" that help provide an understanding of modern contemporary art and progress made. Among the works collected here, there are exhibitions being held in four exhibition rooms on the theme of nature and humanity. There are also various events held in the auditorium and workshop rooms, and a restaurant and shop located inside the museum."

    The drive to Tatebayashi was filled with a tinge of uncertainty. Originally, a friend and I decided to visit the museum for their latest featured exhibition on Egyptian art. But once we rounded the...

    This museum is located three minutes from JR Takasaki Station Nishi-guchi (West exit) by foot. It has a variety of exhibits, such as paintings, sculptures and designs, mainly on contemporary art. It is near to the station, making it an easy-to-visit art space.

The Former Inoue Fusaichiro Residence on the premises was designed after the famous architect, Antonin Raymond's home and workplace.

    Gunma Pref. Kiryushi Kosonechou 3-69
    "This art museum is located 8 minutes by foot from the Jomo Line's Nishi-Kiryu Station, or alternatively, 10 minutes by taxi from Shin-Kiryu Station. The museum displays works collected by Eiji Okawa, a local of Kiryu City. Visitors can appreciate a variety of paintings, mainly consisting of works of art from the Meiji and Taisho periods, and including Eisaku Wada's landscape painting ""Matsushima Godaido"" and Takeji Fujishima's ""Mosha"". There are also a great number of Shunsuke Matsumoto's works and materials, which were the first works to be included in this collection. The museum aims to be a place where ""you can see the masterpieces you want to see, whenever you want to see them"", and as such, has sofas positioned in each of the exhibition rooms. It is designed so that visitors can take their time."

    Kiryu is not exactly a popular tourist destination, so I was surprised to find some really nice paintings in the Okawa museum. They include works from some well known European painters but also a...

As well as the permanent exhibition of works from members of the Ikaho Kirie Association, every four months a temporary exhibition of works by two members of the association takes place. Visitors to the museum can also have a go at the paper-cutouts themselves free of charge.

    帰る日に時間の余裕があり、突然、思い立って出かけてみました。入館受け付けを済ませたら他に2名入ったばかりの方と合わせて5名で、切り絵についての丁寧な説明をしていただきました。さらに、個々の作品についての説明があり、最後に切り絵体験(無料/約30分)までご指導いただき満足して美術館を後にしました。是非、訪問してみてください。

    Gunma Pref. Midorishi Azumachoukusagi 86
    This art museum is along the Togoku Bunka Rekishi Road in Azumacho-Kusagi, Midori City. In this museum, which opened in 1991, you’ll find exhibitions featuring the works of Tomihiro Hoshino, a local painter and poet.

Around the building is a walkway that offers a view of the Kusagi lakeside scenery.

    富弘美術館内でゆっくり過ごす時に食事をするとしたらこちらがお勧めです。 タイトルに記したような軽食しかありませんので、ガッツリ食べることは出来ませんが、 珈琲やハーブティを飲みながら小腹を満たすことができます。 お店の従業員の方もとても親切でした。

    Gunma Pref. Agatsumagunkusatsumachi Kusatsu 479
    The Kataoka Tsurutaro Art Museum, opened in 1998, is a gallery attached to Kusatsu Hotel which can be enjoyed by families. It boasts about 120 permanent exhibits and the exhibition changes four times a year according to the season. Visitors can see the Sainokawara hot spring steam from the large window of the café at the museum, great for relaxing after appreciating the artworks. The café is also open for non-museum patrons.

    西の河原公園の入口の近くにありました。20周年とのことで、入場料が600円と、従来の1千円より安くなっております。入場せずお土産のみを買うこともできます。期待はしておりませんでしたが、展示数も意外と多くて、個人的には作品もよかったと思います。鶴太郎本人がすべて書いたとすれば、何年も準備にかかるかと思われます。有名な海外画家とは違いますが、才能を感じます。写真もフラッシュなしで撮影できますので、気軽...

    Gunma Pref. Tonegunminakamimachi Gokan 737-1
    Located in Minakami Town, Tone County, Gunma Prefecture, this glass theme park includes a hand-made glass workshop exhibiting Japan’s top-class techniques, a museum of glass art, and a retail shop. In the museum, you’ll find a variety of glass works—from ancient roman, to art nouveau, and works made by modern masters. In the workshop, you can take a free tour of how glass products are made. It is adjacent to a workshop for blown glass and stained glass, and to a restaurant that serves local beer.

    I highly suggest googling this in advance to see if the glass styles are your taste. It is not bad at all and I agree with the others that the actual glass blowing activity is not well suited for...

Gunma Areas

Gunma prefecture is synonymous with onsen. Natural hot spring water sources throughout the prefecture have given rise to a series of small onsen towns, each set among luscious mountains. At Kusatsu, Ikaho, and Minakami, traditional indoor and outdoor bathing experiences are served hand in hand with irresistible onsen-themed food, including steam-cooked eggs and custard pudding.
