Yet another place to visit when I return to Japan

Asahi is reporting that the National Museum of Art in Osaka has new digs. Sounds like a neat place.

Thanks to its new venue, the National Museum of Art, Osaka, is now as much of a work of art as the Japanese and foreign contemporary masterpieces it houses.


Visitors enter the museum through a huge, sculpturelike entrance of steel and glass. Although the rest of the museum is located underground, a glass ceiling and open space that let in abundant natural light give the exhibition halls a warm and airy feel.

I haven’t been to Osaka yet, but this is just more impetus to go.
