The Kirishima Art Forest is a modern art museum surrounded by the rich nature of Kirishima.
Not only are there exhibitions held within the museum but there is also a great variation of outdoor exhibitions offered, making good use of the extensive gounds area.
Outside, the 13 hectares area (roughly 32 acres) is spotted with about 22 works of art.
The works displayed outdoors are all original ideas and pieces from efforts made by domestic and international artists who actually visited this site.
Further, while walking along a 2km-garden trail visitors may touch or even sit on the pieces and appreciate the art directly.
