The Building Itself Is An Art. A Large Museum Surrounded By Nature Of Naoshima Island

This museum was opened on the concept of "coexistence of nature, art and architecture". And you can enjoy the modern art works and the building itself with the feeling of island's nature. For it stands on a hill, you can see the nice seascape from the terrace.
