  • It is a revisit for the first time in several years using a pass. The weather was fine this time, so I went up to the roof. When Mr. Asakura opened the Asakura Sculpture School, he explained that gardening was a compulsory subject and that it was a demonstration hall. In addition to the flowers, they also growed vegetables such as mini tomatoes and eggplant. I asked the female staff in the hotel a few questions, but they were very helpful and polite.

  • I just loved learning about the “Rodin of Japan” Fumio Asakura! What a wonderful artist! We had a pleasant time visiting the museum! It’s a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary full of life and grace built by the great artist! Deeply grateful for visiting it :-D
  • Asakura demonstrated his mastery of the 3D form by tackling what must be the hardest subject, that of the domestic cat. No other sculptor in the history of humanity has shown such skill, with most not even attempting to climb this highest peak of the sculptural arts. Not only did Asakura make it to the top, he did it in brass, and with the ringing endorsement of his chosen subjects. Totally unmissable.
