    南画(中国発祥の水墨画)画家、直原玉青(じきはらぎょくせい)の絵画を常設する現代南画の美術館。禅書「うしかひ草」の教えを題材とした代表作「禅の牧牛 うしかひ草」の展示は圧巻です。 天井絵「雲龍図」も一見の価値があります。 近くにある国清庵をセットで尋ねると、襖絵のオリジナルが拝見出来るので、おすすめです。

    Hyogo Awaji-shi Asano Minami 240

    空いていましたが、係員の方が丁寧に説明してくれます。 2つつながった建物、2階建で、移築された農家の母屋と接続されています。 漁師の防寒着「どんざ」、ふとんだんじりなど近世から現代の展示もありますが、淡路島以外で見ないものとして、塩作りのための土器やイイダコ漁のためのたこつぼ土器が興味深かったです。

Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
