Miho Museum

Miho Museum

The museum was built with the intention of creating an atmosphere of nature, art and architecture to inspire visitors to pursue a life of abundance. On entering the site, there is a definite sense of timeless harmony and creative power that exists between nature and humankind.

It nestles among the verdant Shigaraki Mountains. The path to the museum snakes towards its entrance through a tunnel and over a bridge that spans two mountain ridges. On the approach to the museum, one can catch a tantalizing glimpse of the glass roofs above the pine-filled mountain slope which leads you to an ‘earthly paradise’.

The museum was designed by Dr I.M.Pei who has worked for many famous architects and designed the Grand Louvre amongst many others.
