Art blends with nature at this huge outdoor sculpture park, where works by both Japanese and Western artists are framed by trees, grass and mountains.

This is my second time in 4 years at the museum. (This time with my in laws) The Picasso exhibit alone is worth the admission. So many hidden gems all around the place. Foot bath has cheap towels to buy (100 yen)
