I took a walk after lunch.

Today’s goal is : Ikeda Museum of 20th Century Art. 

It took me 20min. from the Sanatorium(Dr. Ishihara’s health resort)

Characteristics of the permanent collection

The permanent collection consists of approximately 1,400 pieces centering on 20th century paintings and sculptures based on a theme of “humanity”. On permanent display inside the museum are epics and excellent works by international masters including Renoir, Bonnard, Picasso, Matisse, Léger, Chagall, Warhol, Miro, Dali, and de Kooning. Special exhibitions are also held every three months in the first floor exhibition room.  (from the Museum HP)

You can take pictures of the fine arts as far as you follow the guideline here.

Presently, the theme of the collections displayed is: Blue

I could enjoy the museum since it was not crowded, and it had spacious room for the arts.

It was sunny and warm to walk back to my hotel.

After some tea time, I took a bath(hot spring) as always, studied English.

Today’s review

I enjoyed the museum, wrote blogs, and studied English.

Thank god I had a peaceful day…
