From the moment you step in- its breathtaking. a perfect combination of art, architecture, zen spirit and incredible nature. Sugimoto is famous for his Sea series, and it feels like he created frames to view the sea as he sees it, as he want us...More

Hiroshi Sugimoto's Enoura Observatory opened to the public in October 2017, and I read a short article about it in a Bangkok design magazine earlier this year. So, our planned trip to the area in May offered an ideal opportunity to go and see this...More

Fascinating museum. Worth coming from Tokyo just for that, if you love architecture and combination of iron, glass, stone - beautiful view. Loved it very much

杉本博司さんの集大成。真鶴の海に面した断崖絶壁の上にはガラスと石の能舞台があり、冬至の朝陽を拝む回廊、それと並行して海景のギャラリーが構える。木造の茶室からほど近いところには野点茶会のしつらいか用意されており、永遠に残る文化と時間と共に消えゆく文化が並列する。未来から見た江之浦はどう見えるのだろうか、そして何百年も前に使われた石の遺跡は今の江之浦をどう見ているのだろう。It is an elegance by Hiroshi Sugimoto. We can easily feel power of nature. Corridor welcomes us at winter solstice where many sea scapes on the wall of tunneled gallery exist. Sugimoto assumes images of this museum of 2000 years later by utilizing very old...More

Truly a must visit structure. Words cannot give it justice. I can’t understand why anyone going there would not give it the highest ratings. If you love and appreciate art, landscaping, and architecture all at once this is the place to go. It just celebrated...More
