Artist's Description

I.M. Pei’s Miho Museum, on a mountain ridge in a nature preserve in Shiga Prefecture, Japan, an hour’s drive from Kyoto. The Miho Museum houses Mihoko Koyama’s private collection of Asian and Western antiques belonging to Mihoko Koyama (after whom it is named), the heiress to the Toyobo textile business, and one of the richest women in Japan.

This photo shows the tunnel leading into the museum that cuts through the mountain. It`s a 200-metre curve, silent and echoless, and ends with the cables of a half suspension bridge 120 meters across a deep, narrow gorge.

Its a stunning museum. If you`re ever in Japan, please check out this hidden gem.
