When nature wins out over a museum

My family and I tend to visit a lot of museums locally - we find them to be fun and enriching, and it often gives my husband and I something to discuss! We visited a nearby museum yesterday that was dedicated to artworks depicting the local region, but we came out of the museum feeling a little underwhelmed.

I guess maybe it wasn't that the museum was bad or boring necessarily, but more so the fact that the views from outside the museum looked like this! Who needs a painting when you've got this staring you in the face!

That's Mt. Hakkai in the background there - probably best known for the Hakkaisan Sake Brewery. It's a pretty spectacular landscape, and I feel like I'm constantly in awe of nature out here.

For the record, if you want to check out the museum (or the view from outside!) you can check out my review of it over here.

Would the art or the beautiful nature outside win out for you here?



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!
