Art Museum

This is a photo gallery next to Shin-Yakushi-ji Temple in Takabatake Town, Nara City. The gallery possesses the entire 80,000 item collection of photographer Irie Taikichi, known for capturing the various Yamato scenery around Nara, and holds exhibitions based around these works and also the work of amateurs. The building itself, a work of architect Kisho Kurokawa, is another highlight and represents the importance of harmony with the environment.

Its a bit of a walk from the main sites, but well worth it. There were two excellent exhibits and the building itself is contemplative and beautifully done. There was also a bird exhibit possibly...

Friends who live nearby delight in taking us to see this photography museum. Now, photography museums are fairly rare, and ones done right (not too cramped or too artsy) are very hard to find. This...

We had a bit of a walk from the station, but a pleasant one, through rice fields and bamboo groves, with pleasant wayside shrines, coffee shops and handicraft boutiques.

          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of "traditional Japan." The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
