Close to ART: MOA Museum of Art *RERUN
The MOA Museum of Art is located in Atami, a region famous for its hot springs and natural beauty. The museum focuses on Japanese art from the 17th and 18th centuries, an era of peace and leisure. Paintings, pottery, sculptures, and other works are displayed in alcoves like in Japanese homes. Vases and screens bearing flowered designs, the simplified expressions of ukiyo-e, and other faces of Japan's natural beauty can be observed not just through the works, but the exhibition area itself.
