D. T. Suzuki Museum Reviews
外国人に人気なのがうなずける。子供連れだったのですぐにでてしまいましたが、次はもっと堪能したい。夫婦でいこうかな。 more »It nods that it is popular with foreigners. Because I was with children, I went out immediately, but I want to enjoy it more next time. I think we'll go as a couple.
自己の内面と向き合うことができます。物見遊山の博物館ではありません。鈴木大拙の思想と自己を対峙することで、己を高める体験ができます。 more »You can face the inner self. It is not a museum of the sightseeing mountain. By confronting the thought and self of Daisuke Suzuki, you can experience to enhance yourself.
Excellent but small museum. Take your time as you go through it and carefully consider the few exhibits as they have been created with great care. I sat in the small library and read through a chapter of one of his books. A great experience and peaceful exercise! It’s fine for children, but it’s definitely geared more towards adults. Take time to sit in the contemplation space and look out over the small man-made pond. A tranquil and relaxing place that you could walk through in 10 minutes or stay an hour.
Very interesting museum either the building and the collection. The visit to this museum made me to learn more about D.T. Suzuki works. Unfortunately it’s not allowed to take photos inside the museum
