Notojima Glass Art Museum

This Museum is the only public specialized glass art museum in Japan. The Museum displays some unique glass sculptures based on the original ideas from Picasso, Chagall, etc. The Museum also displays Chinese Qing Glass works. The open space outside the Museum also has 14 glass sculptures that look different at different times of the day or year. It's also interesting to note the changes as the weather changes. The Museum building which stands on a small hill looking out to the sea is itself worth watching as it gives an impression of some space station.
