Review of Hiroshige Museum of Art

Reviewed:2018/12/05 広重美術館
こじんまりしていて良かったが、イメージしていたのとちょっと違って、もう少し展示と説明があったらなお良かったと思いました。

天童温泉のど真ん中にあるゆったりとした美術館です。
見た限り本物があるわけでも無いようですが、一枚一枚丁寧な紹介文がありました。
展示は一階と二階に分かれています。

ここは天童温泉街の真ん中にある美術館です
隣には日本酒の大吟醸で有名な出羽桜酒造の美術館があります
できれば、隣の美術館とセットで行くのをおすすめします

          Although often overlooked, Yamagata prefecture by no means lacks appeal: the Yamadera temple trail through the mountains, deliciously tender Yonezawa wagyu, and over 100 steaming hot springs, most notably Zao Onsen, await visitors. When winter comes, the snowcapped peaks become dotted with skiers by day and onsen-goers by night, while summer brings the celebration of juicy Yamagata cherries.
