Oyamasakisansou museum 10/10/23 大山崎山荘

There is Tadao Ando design museum in a compound with an original Oyamasaki villa. They exhibit antique, and Western modern art. The view from the cafe from the second floor of the villa is splendid. It is in the North part of Japan 20 minutes from Kyoto. There is a huge designed garden both western and Japanese style that visitors are freely walking around.

You need to pay the fee to go inside of the museum, but just to visit the garden is free of charge, so mothers with children were picnicking and playing around the garden at the bottom of the villa.

Around the area, there is an old temple that store very important Buddhist statues.

Red Thunder the cargo train I don't normally see, so I took it from the JR train.

After a while passing of Osaka station, the train passed in a mountain area.

I went across the railway to the other side.

An old map of Tennouzan mountain.

It said entrance to the Tennozan mountain.

If I had more time, I would be crazy exploring in the odd recycle store.

Not sure it could call cearn display or not?!!!

A gate to the Oyamasaki villa.

The gate had a nice design.

The cottage was hidden behind trees.

There was a koi pond and there was some building with a tower inside the garden.

The building over the pond is private property and I could not go in.

Nice arch design.

I should have asked to somebody, but there were two sheep installation in the garden.

Here is the close-up view with the tower.

My favorite reflection sky. Ando Tadatoshi architecture.

Looking up the villa's balcony from the back garden. It was where I drank coffee at a cafe.

Just took it, because it has the same name with a idol Japanese singer Tatsuya Yamaguchi.

Frank Lloyd Wright フランク ロイド ライト

Here is my school essay regarding Frank Lloyd Wright.

Yodoko Guest House

There are fourteen building designs, which Frank Lloyd Wright has done in Japan. Six building were built, but two of them were destroyed by the 1923 Magnitude 7.9 Great Kanto earthquake (around Tokyo.)

Frank Lloyd Wright traveled outside of America for the first time, and went to Japan with his wife. There were 37 years old in the year, and he spent two months touring natural and historical landmarks from Nikko (North East of Tokyo) all the way down to (Shikoku island) Takamatsu.

He made a contract to build the new Imperial Hotel in Tokyo in late 1911. After a year of project delays and several trans-Pacific crossings, Wright finally took up part-time residence in Tokyo in January 1917. (Wrightian Architectural Archives Japan)

In 1918, Wright made a design plan for a second house for Tazaemon Yamamura who was the eighth-generation brewer of the famous sake “Sakuramasamurne,” in Nada (near Kobe.) It took a while …
