Shimane Prefectural IWAMI ART MUSEUM島根県立石見美術館

Art Museum

An art museum that's part of the Shimane Arts Center's Grand Toit, a facility for culture and the arts in the Iwami area. The venue holds high-quality thematic exhibits from its permanent collection, as well as a range of special exhibitions covering a variety of fields, workshops, and lectures to deepen understanding of the arts. Made with 280,000 tough and durable locally produced Sekishu-gawara roofing tiles, it's a landmark that harmonizes with the surrounding natural environment. It's next to the Iwami Art Theater, built for the appreciation and creation of the arts. The courtyard connects the museum and the theater and is a nice break spot for visitors.

企画展「ゆかた 浴衣 YUKATA」を見に行きました。ゆかたWEEKの期間中、ゆかたでご来場の方を無料招待します、と小粋なサービス。心豊かな気分に浸ることが出来ます。Wi-Fi繋がりやトイレ洗浄は期待できないものの、芸術劇場併設とハコモノとしては立派。

美術館と芸術劇場の2つをあわせ持つ巨大な施設。かなり静かでエアコンが効いている。あまり入館者もおらず歩くと床と靴が擦れる音がする。展示物もなかなかよい。火曜日が休館日

          What Shimane prefecture lacks in size and population, it makes up for in scenery and ancient mythology. Izumo-taisha, in the middle of the prefecture, is said to be Japan's oldest Shinto shrine, where stories that delve into the creation of the Japanese race have been passed down over centuries. The 180 Oki Islands, a 40-minute ferry ride north of Sakaiminato, offer an undiscovered paradise well off the beaten track.
