Kankaku Museum

See, hear, touch, taste and smell: Art that stimulates your five senses

Kankaku Museum is a museum that you can appreciate by fully using your five senses - see, hear, touch, taste and smell. The museum consists of two zones: the Dialogue Zone (body sensation space) and Monologue Zone (meditation space).

There are many exhibits where you can be aware of your senses. These include the Ear Object, the Dark Forest and the Fragrant Forest. The concept of the museum is to regain freedom and richness of the mind that we tend to lose living in a material civilization. This is achieved by improving our sensitivity and enhancing our imagination trough sensory experiences. It is a unique space where both children and adults can be healed while enjoying themselves.
