The Chichu Art Museum is designed by Tadao Ando and is located on a small island south of the main island of Japan. It's very unknown by tourists; only Japanese people know about it. The Art Museum is embedded in the hilly landscape of the island; from the sky only rectangular forms are visible, which gives the museum an mysterious character. Inside the routing is so that you only experience views at the sky, or, in the restaurant, the beautiful scenery of the island coast. The museum is built only in concrete, which gives it a solid expression. There are several art projects inside, the one even more amazing than the other. Note that every piece of art is only accessible by wearing slippers, offered by the futuristic dressed girls in white clothes.
