野島埼灯台の、ちょうど裏側にある、個人の家で営業している美術館です。 行くのに、やや分かりにくいですが、絵画が好きなら、空いていて良いかも。

          The Boso Peninsula forms the main body of Chiba prefecture, and this is where you'll find its endless warm water beaches and jagged mountains. Further inland, Narita - most famous as the home of Narita Airport - is a secret haven of tradition and history in the form of centuries-old Shinshoji Temple and quaint wooden Edo buildings. Chiba prefecture is also home to both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
