Miho Museum

Travel Guide - Miho Museum


This museum is built so as to melt into the mountains of Shigaraki. To preserve its environment, more than 80% of the building is underground. And the exhibits are as impressive as the architecture. Works on display are selected from a collection more than 2,000, and include pieces of from the Nara and Heian periods (8th – 12th centuries).
