Nestled between Matsue and the border of Tottori prefecture you will find Yasugi. While most commonly known as the home of Adachi Museum of Art and its gardens that claim #1 on the list of Japanese gardens, there is so much more to experience than just gardens. Some things to try include traditional indigo dyeing at Hirose Kasuri Center, Buddhist monk food (no meat of fish) at Kiyomizu-dera Temple, and the humorous “dojo-sukui” dance at Yasugibushi Performance Hall.

1 Adachi Museum of Art ( 足立美術館 )

Adachi Museum of Art garden

Conveying the harmonized beauty of Japanese painting and Japanese Gardens is the aim and wish of Adachi Museum of Art, which is best known for having one of the greatest collections of modern to contemporary Japanese arts. Such works of art include numerous masterpieces by the great Japanese painter Yokoyama Taikan, ceramics and 165,000 square-metre Japanese gardens. The museum is listed at two-stars in the Michelin Green Guide Japan, but its spectacular and immaculately maintained Japanese-styled gardens are listed at three-stars and have been ranked at NO.1 since 2003 by the US magazine Journal of Japanese Gardens. You can appreciate the splendid beauty of their gardens which show a different appearance as time / days/ months/ season change.
