ART SHANGRI-LA
Miho Museum

This private museum was opened in 1997 to house close to 2,000 pieces of art, from Ancient Greek to Roman, and Middle Eastern to Asian works. Located high in the mountains of Shigaraki, 80% of the museum structure was built underground so as not to hinder the natural landscape. The architectural marvel was designed by I. M. Pei, who envisioned creating a “Shangri-La” for the museum’s collection.
