今まで見た中で一番美しい日本庭園でした。展示は横山大観の紅葉が見事でした。最低でも3時間は滞在した方がいいと思います。また、翠というカフェもお庭を独り占めしながらお茶やコーヒーを楽しめます。音声ガイドもあった方がおすすめです。 One of the best beautiful Japanese garden. You can enjoy any season here,But I recommend that you’d better to visit there in Autumn.Colored leaves and mountains view were amazing.You can rent English voice guidance,It works well.

The museum houses about 1500 paintings and sculptures, all by Japanese artists. While it doesn’t have any piece that a casual art fan would know, the presentation and efficient use of space are impressive. The staff here do an excellent job enforcing a good environment...More

Near Matsue, this is one of the most beautiful we have visited. Perfectly sculpted settings - water (sand) and trees (pine) and rocks (islands) evoking a picture postcard. If you are in the area, Matsue is quite a ways from Tokyo, Adachi is not to...More

The art museum is interesting but the stand out feature of this place is the garden. Breathtaking, perfect and all the myriad other superlatives one's feeble vocabulary can muster. It is a work of art in its own right and what a masterpiece. Every aspect...More

I wish TripAdvisor would allow additional stars for rating exceptional places. Were that the case I would award about 8 stars to the Adachi Museum of Art. This is unquestionably the most beautiful garden I've seen in Japan or anywhere else; add to that the...More

The Adachi Museum is surrounded by the most beautiful Japanese garden I have ever seen. The garden merges into the hills behind it into one glorious sight. I could have spent hours just gazing at it. The Museum itself was interesting but the garden was...More

It's quite far away. It takes about 3.5 - 4 hours from Kyoto to Yasugi (about 390 km). It will cost around 12,000 yen (one way). Take the Nozomi bullet train from Kyoto to Okayama (it's 3 stops). Then, transfer to the JR... More
