On the weekend, my wife and I took a drive and got dressed up.
From Route 1, we went to Shiga via Keiji Bypass, and our destination was the Sagawa Art Museum in Moriyama City. It was smoother than I expected and took about an hour and a half to get there.
The museum existed in a quiet place on the shore of Lake Biwa.
I had heard that “Sagawa Museum of Art is very good”, but it was better than what I had heard. As soon as I stood in front of the museum, I thought, “Whoa.
It’s good…” she said without thinking. The building matched the tranquility of Lake Biwa and blended in nicely with the nature. It doesn’t feel different at all.
The sensibility of the architect is amazing… I was really impressed.
The exhibit features works by Ikuo Hirayama and Tadayoshi Sato. Ikuo Hirayama was also seen at the Adachi Museum of Art in Shimane last year, and the Sagawa Museum of Art, with a focus on the Silk Road, is a great example.
It was also great.
After about two hours, we left the Sagawa Museum of Art and went east on the south shore of Lake Biwa for about 30 minutes to walk around Hachimanbori in Omihachiman.
After seeing the townhouses of Omi merchants and the excavation of Hachiman Castle built by Hidetsugu Toyotomi, we drove again along the south shore of Lake Biwa, crossed the Lake Biwa Bridge and went to Kenda, Yuqoto and
We were on our way home through Sakamoto.
We returned home at 4:30 p.m., the first comfortable drive we’ve had in a long time.
