Takamatsu City Museum of Art

Takamatsu, the capital city of Shikoku, describes the museum on its public web page: "Takamatsu City Museum of Art is a modern building in the heart of the city. It is where you will find Picassos and Chagalls as well as the works of Nagare Masayuki, world famous sculptor, Inokuma Genichiro and Kimura Chuta, both abstract painters, Fujikawa Yuzo, who studied under Rodin in France, Isoi Nyoshin, a living national treasure, lacquerwork artist" and more.

A travel guide describes it as "a bit out of place ... surrounded by restaurants and little boutique stores ... but it puts together nice collections of contemporary and traditional art." From this photo, I'm not sure what they're talking about.

Where is it? 10-4, Konya-machi. Tel: 823-1711. Open Tues-Fri 9:30am-7pm, Sat-Sun 9:30am-5pm. Entry is 200 yen (about US$2) or 150 yen for students. Special shows can cost more.
