Wood, Washi Paper and World-Class Works of Art
At one with nature: nurturing comics, culture and closer community ties
The Comico Art Museum Yufuin, in Oita prefecture in Kyushu, blends seamlessly into the beautiful local surroundings while showcasing abundant visual feasts of its own.
Galleries feature works by masters such as the world-famous Takashi Murakami, prolific proponent of Japanese modern art and Hiroshi Sugimoto, whose monochrome ‘Seascapes’ series intensifies the pre-existing black and white interplay of the building.
The open gallery on the second floor features a striking dog sculpture by Yoshitomo Nara. For cultural arts and comics and novels in a setting that melts into the landscape, Comico delivers.
Please note that an online reservation is required to enter the museum.
Yufuin is located in Kyushu, Japan’s southern island, about an hour and a half flight and a 2-hour bus ride from Tokyo via Fukuoka Airport.
