The red brick building that is registered as tangible cultural property used to
be a storage for the old army and is renovated to the art museum.
There is a unique building in a park rich in green…
It is located in a quiet area. The unique concrete building designed by Tadao Ando will jump up in your sight.
The symbolic building is the dome shaped stupa that is 38m high. It was a gift from the Prime Minister Nehru from India with a wish for eternal peace and happiness for humans. I enshrine Buddha’s ash and statue of hakasanzon and the ten principal disciples. It has pure and solemn atmosphere. In early April, cherry blossoms are beautiful and in mid-April, azaleas over the mountain in red, white, and pink.
It is a famous Tadao Ando building.
