21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art

The 21st century museum of contemporary art in Kanazawa features modern art from around the world. The museum itself is an interesting piece of modern architecture with a circular design encircled by glass walls allowing for plenty of natural light to go through. One of the famous exhibit of the museum is Leandro Erlich’s “Swimming Pool”. Visitors can enter the swimming pool through an access from the basement. The pool is covered by a glass ceiling with a shallow layer of water that gives the illusion of a real pool to the observers above while other guests are walking at the bottom.

Since my better half is Japanese I often have the chance to travel to Japan. I grew fond over time of this magnificent country. I thought of sharing with you some places worth visiting in this little but growing travel guide to Japan. I try to show with images what I can't express with words. I hope you may find here some inspiration! For those who wonder, I chose the moniker Gaijin-San after being called like this by a waitress at a grilled eel restaurant. "Gaijin" means foreigner and "San" is a honorific suffix in Japanese.
