Review of Kagawa Museum

Reviewed:2019/09/20 Nice Museum
Kagawa features exhibits of modern artwork from around the world, so, be prepared to see a little of this and a little of that from other cultures.
Reviewed:2019/05/02 Brilliant exhibition and permanent collection.
I was totally spoilt when I visited the Kahala Museum, the most amazing exhibition of illustrated books from the the Edo period on plants, fishes and birds. You do not have to be a fan of those areas...

          Kagawa Areas


          Japan’s smallest prefecture, Kagawa, may take up just a small corner of Shikoku, but it has grown increasingly popular with the recognition of Naoshima, its "art island" in the Seto Inland Sea between Shikoku and Honshu. Just a stone’s throw from the islands, mainland Kagawa’s prefectural capital, Takamatsu, holds history in its castle ruins and its pride and joy, Ritsurin Garden, is known as one of the country’s best gardens.
