contributed by Burutapen

Shiba Ryotaro is one of the best known historical novel writers in Japanese history. His researched work has been translated to a large number of languages and within Japan he is regarded as a hero. This museum is set around his house and the window from his studio, overlooking a wonderful garden, sets the pace for one of the most wonderful architectural experiences that Tadao Ando has ever created. A swiping path allows you to glance into the Master's studio and lead you into the main building where Ando uses a variety of tricks to enhance the experience of the space. Light, materials and scale are used cleverly to overwhelm visitors and bring them to heart of Shiba's world. Tips: 1. You cannot take photos inside, hence there are none here, pls don't. 2.As you get to the lower level of the cathedral like window , look up to the left side of the window and you will see a stain on the ceiling which many believe to be shaped as the hero of Ryotaro's best known novel "Ryoma ga yuku".
