Aki Calligraphy Art Museum (安芸市立書道美術館)

3.5

Art Museum

Japan's first calligraphy museum. Located in Doikachu at the site of Aki Castle, its Calligraphy Hall of Fame has received national attention. Calligraphy has been very popular in Aki since the feudal era. During the late Taisho and Showa periods it produced master calligraphers such as Oun Kawatani, the Shotei Brothers, and Yukei Teshima. The museum houses approximately 2,000 pieces of Japanese calligraphy brushed by them and other leading artists. Around 100 works of Chinese characters, the Japanese syllabary, and seal engravings by currently active calligraphers are always on display.

安芸城跡は草木が生い茂った高台にあるのですが、その傍にお城の一部を再現した小さなお城の様な建物が書道美術館です。30分程度あれば十分見学できると思います。
Reviewed:2016/10/26 メインは南不乗の特別展示室
安芸城跡に建つ博物館。城の天守閣っぽい建物で、この場所に合わせたものだと思います。たぶん、メインは南不乗の特別展示室。悠々とした展示室でゆっくり鑑賞できますが、なぜこんな施設がここにあるのか不思議な感じもして、正直言えば、なかなか気持ちが落ち着かなかったような気もします。

          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.
