Urasoe Art Museum (浦添市美術館)

3.5

Art Museum

A 20-minute drive from the center of Naha City. Established in 1990, this was Japan's first museum dedicated to lacquerware art and was also the first public museum in Okinawa. The exterior of the museum is designed in a mixture of national styles recalling Southeast Asian and European influences. The museum's five standing exhibition rooms are split between two periods - early and latter - and contain 60 examples of Ryukyuan lacquerware. There are also examples of lacquerware from the Japanese mainland, China, and Southeast Asia split between the two periods. Additionally, the museum holds painting, photo, and other art exhibitions several times a year in its three special exhibition rooms.

建物もお洒落で素敵な美術館。展望塔もあり登れます。
こちらの常設展は琉球漆器が中心。漆器の展示だけではなく、歴史や作り方なども丁寧に説明がありました。
企画展も時々行っていて、行った日は「落合光昭の世界ネコ歩き」写真展もしていてラッキーでした...

那覇市に隣接する浦添市にある美術館。
大きな道路に面しているので空港から車でもわかりやすいです。
駐車場も広いです。那覇市美術館より小さいですが、色々な展示会があります。
周囲も緑あり、少し歩くと野球のヤクルトのキャンプ地である浦添球場もあります。
散策すると楽しいです。

          Let go of your image of a busy, ordered Japan and replace it with crystal-clear waters, white sand beaches, and relaxing folk music: You've arrived in Okinawa. A world away from the high intensity of Tokyo, Okinawans appear to live a laid-back beach life on this paradisiacal tropical island that lies in the middle of the East China Sea almost 1,000 kilometers south of mainland Japan's most southern tip. Home to a spattering of islands, prepare yourself to discover underwater caves, star-shaped sand, and an island culture sometimes unrecognizable from mainland Japan.
