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.

1hour guided tours are available. Please note that an online reservation is required to enter the museum.
Yufuin is located in Kyushu, Japan’s southern island, about a 2 hour flight and 1 hour train ride from Tokyo, via Oita Airport.
