The Matsumoto City Museum of Art it seems like a rather ordinary building until you see the gigantic "blooms" looming over the museum sign. As you get nearer, the full scale of the colorful floral installation becomes apparent. The installation stays with you as your move around the museum in the form of reflections and colors, which filter the though the glass and wood building.

I've been living in Hiroshima since the mid 90's & still discovering new things to enjoy. I'm a big fan of both the old "wabi sabi" as well as modern and new designs, Japan offers both of these type of places to explore and enjoy. Even after many years here, I am still discovering surprising, fantastic and wacky things about this strange and wonderful land. I hope you enjoy your adventures around Japan- feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about traveling with kids, vegetarian dining or anything specific to Hiroshima.
