Situated in the picturesque foothills of the Nihondaira Plateau , the Shizuoka Prefectural Museum of Art presents a solid collection of Eastern and Western landscape art from masters such as Monet, Gauguin, and Pissarro, as well as Japanese artists such as Taikan Yokoyama and Jakuchu Ito. The Rodin Wing, a museum within the museum, is dedicated primarily to replicas of the sculptures of Auguste Rodin, with his massive work "The Gates of Hell" a central draw.
