PHOTOGRAPHY AND PEACEFUL GARDENS
IZU PHOTO MUSEUM

Izu Photo Museum opened in 2009 to explore works of photography and film. Since then, it has organized a wide range of exhibitions addressing the many issues surrounding photography and time-based media. The interior space and garden were designed by artist Hiroshi Sugimoto, and the details that belie this can be readily spotted: crystal glass, shadow and light, and tearoom-like tranquility. Plan your trip to include visits to the other museums at the Clematis no Oka art complex, such as Bernard Buffet Museum, Vangi Sculpture Garden Museum, and Yasushi Inoue Literary Museum. Be sure not to miss the restaurants either.
