The beautiful complex was designed and built by Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Ando who built it during 1998- 1991. The place is home to a total of three buildings out of which one is entirely traditional with a Japanese garden in it. The other two are fairly modern and represents the designer’s signature style he is known for. The place is open for tourists, though it is among the less visited destinations in the city. The design of the house include sloping areas with nice terrace and ponds that are great to sit by and wonder. It also provides nice sight of the Himeji castle. The place is easily accessible by bus. One of the buildings has a petite lovely cafe on the top floor to eat in. Great to capture the essence of Japanese tradition!

  • Good

  • アンジュエール姫路というウェディングフォト専門店での撮影ロケとして使わせてもらった。非常に情緒のある良い建物、庭園で、和服に合う良いロケーションだった。姫路城からは少し離れた人通りの少ないところにあるので、混雑することはあまり無さそう。利用者用の駐車場は数台しか停められない。近くにコインパーキングがあるかどうかは不明。

  • 特別展目当てで行きましたが、常設展もよかったです。新しい施設だけあって、見やすく、分かりやすくデザインして展示されていると思いました。デジタル機器も効果的に使われています。
