Arai Memorial Museum of Art (荒井記念美術館)

4.0

Art Museum

"This art museum is located on a hill overlooking Iwanai on the Sea of Japan. The two buildings contain three museums and concert halls. This museum is famous for holding several engravings by Pablo Picasso, the father of Cubism. It has a collection of 267 pieces, including ""The Frugal Meal"" from his youth, to ""Erotica"" from his late period. The Picasso Museum displays 40 carefully selected pieces at all times, and is on the second and third floors of Hall 1. It's a perfect space to approach the view of Picasso's world, which is as enchanting today as it has ever been."

Reviewed:2017/10/05 Geographical mystery but worth a visit!
The owners reason for putting a Picasso collection up here, in the hills overlooking the quiet, out-of-the-way seaside snow town of Iwanai, will have to remain a mystery. So its worth a visit for...
Reviewed:2015/09/06 An exceptional and exceptionally well hidden gem
this significant gallery has 267 works of Picasso and yet there is not even a sign by the side of the road to proclaim its existence! It is located in the Maruyama area of Iwanai behind the hotel...

いわない高原ホテル奥。ピカソの版画を多数所蔵。ホームページを印刷してお持ちいただくと通常1,000円→900円と入館料金が割引になります。しりべしミュージアムロード共同展2019「晴れ ときどき曇り、ところにより雪」スタンプラリー参加館も他館はPRが控え目。4館目に気付くも時既に遅し。1階奥には西村計雄美術館や生れ出づる悩み美術館を併設。創設者の趣味か結構シュール。

          Not just a prefecture but an island of its own, Hokkaido is the most northerly prefecture and island of the Japanese archipelago. Arriving in Hokkaido, which is rural and bursting with breathtaking nature, means entering a world where vast national parks, towering mountains, and natural hot springs can be found at every turn. Come December, these natural splendors freeze over and morph into a winter wonderland.
