Within Daikokuya, a hot-spring ryokan located in Itamuro Onsen, you can find this art gallery with a display of works by modern artist Kishio Suga, particularly his “Mono-ha”, a representative Japanese style.
Mono-ha refers to pieces of art made by simply putting together stones, wood, cotton, iron and the like. That simplistic appearance is filled with the aesthetic sense of the proud Japanese culture, and it irradiates a feeling of certainty.
As long as you have a reservation, it is not necessary to lodge in the Daikokuya in order to appreciate or, if desired, purchase these works.
Itamuro Onsen prides itself on its certainty. How about coming and admiring modern Japanese art in this tranquil hot-spring district?
