Museum of Art, Kochi

The museum makes the most use of the local culture and climate of Tosa surrounded by water and greenery. It was built with traditional techniques, with its walls finished with “Tosa plaster” and the roof with “Tosa tiles.” Apart from exhibition rooms, visitors can enter the museum free of charge, and view a collection of paintings by Marc Chagall and pictures taken by photographer Yasuhiro Ishimoto, among other works on display. Visitors can also enjoy themselves in an art library and a music shop.
