One of Japan’s top cultural attractions, Nagashima Museum overlooks downtown Kagoshima and Kagoshima Bay area and reflects the country’s intrinsic relationship with both international and domestic art. With a multitude of gallery spaces, each devoted to a particular theme such as local art, western art, and collections from the New World, space is a bastion of culture on the island. Visitors flock from far and wide to peruse the vast array of world-class art on display including work by Rodin and Renoir. Opened in 1989 Nagashima Museum, a few points set it apart from other galleries in that some of the exhibits are shown in the museum grounds which are quite extensive. Subtropical trees and nature populate the outdoor spaces and can be a pleasant way of experiencing some air after spending hours in the indoor gallery spaces.
