I went here to see the Picasso showing. It was wonderful. The sculpture garden was beautifully landscaped with very large sculptures. You must soak your feet at the end. Buy a small towel to dry your feet for only $100 yen.

It was an interesting experience but not really enjoyable as i do not appreciate art that much. However, it is a very nice place to chill and relax! They have a hot spring foot bath!
