It has been 33 years since MOA Museum of Art was established in 1982, and we are currently carrying out refurbishment construction to renovate the exhibition space and museum facilities. The renovation of its lobby area and exhibition galleries are being provided by New Material Research Laboratory, led by world-renowned contemporary artist Hiroshi Sugimoto and architect Tomoyuki Sakakida. Contrary to its name, New Material Research Laboratory is focused on researching materials and techniques used in ancient, medieval, and early modern times, and finding ways to incorporate them in contemporary architecture and pass them down to the future. They will be exploring a myriad of possibilities to design incredible spaces for the MOA Museum of Art. The concepts of MOA Museum of Art are as follows: The Fundamental Plans of the Museum We shall aim to become a museum transmitting information of Japanese Art. We shall promote the development of tourism, art and crafts. Having a cooperative p

The best museum ever! I think everyone would like this museum even if usually you have less interest in them. The architecture is unique, I especially liked the escalator. I recommend you rest in the tea room or restaurant outside of the museum. 爽快な気分になれる美術館。美術館が好きでもそうでない人も絶対に気にいると思います。建物は新しく斬新で、入り口の長いエスカレーターが意外と特にお気に入りです。おわったあとは、屋外の尾形光琳の家を改装したレストランや隣接するお茶屋さんで一服するのがおすすめです。

The building complex is quite impressive, it sits in the top of a hill, some 300 meters above sea level while still being very close to the ocean. The artwork inside the museum consists mostly on ancient relics from Japanese past eras. Worth visiting.

這次伊豆熱海行的其中一個非常期待的景點是位於熱海市桃山町的「MOA美術館」。 這座私立美術館由世界救世教教祖岡田茂吉於1982年成立,地勢位於山上,可俯瞰整個相模灣以至漂浮在相模灘上的初島和伊豆大島。從房總半島到三浦半島,伊豆半島180度的廣闊風景一覽無遺,景色極為美麗。 MOA美術館的收藏品以日本及東洋藝術為主,有繪畫、雕塑、瓷器、書法、漆器等,範圍廣闊且豐富,更另設能樂堂、茶苑及茶室。 午餐就在美術館中的漂亮日式庭園內的蕎麦店解決吧! Ingeniously carved into the slopes of Mount Izu, the MOA Museum of Art takes a bit of effort to get to; yet its remarkable architecture and collection of ancient Japanese and East Asian art easily justify a visit. Within the vast...More

You go to a museum for the collection, and this one's is great, spanning ancient Buddhist art to contemporary craft art. However, this building itself is a joy to explore and the views are superb. Wonderful museum.

This museum can boast more about its facilities and setting than its collection. The entry through the escalators is luminous & colorful. View from the museum of the city and Sagami bay is also breathtaking. Should take a break in the cafe and enjoy.

We went to Atami to soak and relax. This museum, both its exhibits and the structure, turned out to be extremely wonderful.
