MOA Museum
MOA美術館 (MOA Museum)

Mesmerizing views of art and the four seasons that will move you

The MOA museum was built in 1982 to represent Atami and boasts a collection of over 3,500 pieces, which includes Oriental art, calligraphy and handicrafts as well as national treasures and important cultural assets.  Built on a 70,000 square meter high hill overlooking Atami, visitors can take in beautiful views of Izu Oshima, Hatsushima and the ocean from the main lobby of the museum and MOA Square.  Within the facility there is a Japanese garden where visitors can enjoy differing views of the four seasons, such as cherry blossoms and azaleas in spring, the fresh green of early summer and colourful autumn foliage. Visitors can also unwind in the Japanese teahouse “Ippaku-an” and enjoy views of the beautiful garden while sipping Japanese tea and sweets. Even people who are not fans of art can enjoy the beautiful scenery and nature of Japanese gardens.
