4.0

Museum / Science Museum

This prefectural museum is located near Wakayama Castle in Wakayama City, Wakayama Prefecture. It was moved to its current location and opened in 1994. Architect Kisho Kurokawa designed the building, which features glass walls for a bright, modern look. The collection consists of over 1,000 items, including cultural artifacts and historical documents related to Wakayama Prefecture on display, along with materials on Mt. Koya, the Kumano faith, and the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage route. There are also items that belonged to Kishu Tokugawa. The regular exhibits introduce 30,000 years of Wakayama Prefecture history, and special exhibitions and other projects are held year-round.

Review of Wakayama Prefectural Museum

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2019/10/06 入館無料
以前に、来たことがあったのですが、毎月第1日曜日が、入館無料となったため、来てみました。良い取り組みだと思います。
Reviewed:2019/04/13 熊野・高野山の展示が参考になった
基本的には年代順に歴史を追う形の展示になっていますが、熊野、高野山は詳しく展示がありました。この後に高野山に行く予定だったため、参考になりました。この博物館と見た後に和歌山城を歩いて2時間弱でした。駐車場は博物館地下にあり2時間は無料でした。
Reviewed:2019/02/16 아름다운 건축물
와카야마 성 옆에 위치하고 있는 와카야마 현립 미술관 입니다. 1994년에 현재의 건물에 이전을 했다는데, 쿠로카와 기쇼가 설계한 건물 자체가 엄청나게 모던하고 아름다워서 요즘에 건축되었다고 하더라도 충분히 납득할 수 있을 정도 입니다. 공간 자체가 무척이나 아름다우니, 내부 전시가 무엇이 되었든 한 번쯤 방문해 보길 권합니다.

          Wakayama prefecture unites pilgrims, food lovers, and culture buffs in a tranquil corner of Japan at the base of the Kii Peninsula. The setting for many a Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail, Wakayama invites those in search of spirituality from one side of the prefecture to the other, from the 100-plus Buddhist temples of the sacred Mount Koya in the west to the inspiring temples of the Kumano Sanzan set among breathtaking nature in the east. Once the grueling hike is complete, make a beeline for Wakayama city to savor some of the country’s most delicious ramen noodles.
