TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2020/02/17 A lovely museum that features the work of an excellent Japanese.
We particularly liked the pictures that the artist painted along the Silk Road. His use of vivid colors isa highlight of his work.

          The largest of Shikoku's prefectures, Kochi is endowed with some of the island's most exceptional sand beaches lining the Pacific Ocean, which narrows into the Shimanto-gawa, a huge river that stretches 196 kilometers into the prefecture, passing verdant mountains and hosting countless riverside activities. Whether you're a pilgrim or not, Kochi's 16 Buddhist temples that make up one leg of the Shikoku Pilgrimage are worth a visit, particularly Chikurin-ji for its five-tier pagoda.
