Yufuin Stained glass museum (由布院ステンドグラス美術館)

4.0

Art Museum

Some 400 years ago, Yufuin is said to have been a paradise for Japan’s hidden Christians. The Yufuin Stained Glass Art Museum opened in 1996 in this town which has carried an air of the West since that time. The first truly dedicated stained glass art museum in Japan, the museum presents European stained glass by time period and region. The museum also offers visitors the chance to try stained glass-making for themselves. A 15-minute walk from Yufuin Station on the Kyudai Main Line.

Reviewed:2019/02/09 Stained glass making experience
I tried to make Stained glass at here.
They teach me how to make it kindly.
It’s interesting. It’s needed around 1.5 hours.
Price will be 3000-5000 JP YEN.
It depends on your design.
Reviewed:2015/08/04 Small collection of stained glass
In order to appreciate the beauty and value of stained glasses, it is better to have basic knowledge and history about them. Though this church keeps a small collection of valuable stained glasses...
Reviewed:2014/10/31 A bit disappointing
Went because a friend is interested in stained glass and this was near to our hotel. The church which is part of the museum was lovely but you could not take photos. There was no English to explain...

          A trip to Oita is tantamount to a long soak in the Beppu baths. The mountainous, coastal prefecture of Oita is renowned for having more onsen than any other prefecture in Japan, most of which lie in the city of Beppu on the west coast of Kyushu, recognizable by its pungent sulphuric aroma and the clouds of steam that puff up across the hillside. Away from the Beppu hot springs await mountains, waterfalls, and temples, so don’t hesitate to explore Oita a little further.
