Mindscape Museum

Located in the Chuo Sogo Koen at just over 200 hectares (around 500 acres), the culture zone features the beautifully designed Mindscape Museum and its gardens.The Museum itself has a permanent collection and often hosts important exhibitions, both of Japanese arts and collections brought to Japan. It opened in July 1996, and was built into the hill, harmonizing with the landscape as the external structure and water feature follows the contours of the descending slope to a pond.At the top of the hill/building, there are eight wind-power generators and the mist from the artificially-generated "Mist Circle" installation near the upper entrance shows the direction of the wind.The area of the building that remains above ground frames a large atrium inside. Go inside and enjoy.
