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

4.0

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.

実家が近く年に1度訪れています。
様々な企画展や催しも良いものが多いですが、建物だけでも一見の価値あり。
益田観光の際にはぜひ。

博多駅から新幹線で新山口まで。在来線(山口線)に乗り換えて益田駅下車し、後はタクシーで行きました。
壁や床、地面いっぱいの石州瓦で埋め尽くされていて、美しいを通り越して不思議な感覚にとらわれました。
展示場も広く、のんびりと癒されました。夫の仕事に同行したのですが、夫が仕事中も一人で館内を散策(?)することができました。公共の交通機関の便利が良いといいと思いました。

素敵な建物です。別名、グラントア。
益田市という、お世辞にもアクセスが良いとは言えない土地にあるのもなんだか良いです。アーキテクチャに興味がある方には面白いと思います。

カフェもありますし、ゆっくりできますよ。

          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.
