Karuizawa New Art Museum (KaNAM)

 Karuizawa New Art Museum (KaNAM)

This museum is located in the street, on the way from Karuizawa Station to Kyu-Karuizawa (10-minute-walk from Karuizawa Station). Karuizawa New Art Museum include both Japanese post-war and modern art, and also foreign new art. The museum also exhibits their collections of artwork, created by many amazing artists from around the world. The building is really nice in design, as the whole building is encased in glass, giving a really bright and elegant atmosphere. The glass and white colour inside the building allow the natural light to reach every area of the building. The white pillars in front of the museum represents an elegant larch forest inside. The design matches really well of the combination of modern and nature, just like the idea of Karuizawa town. There are also an art shop and Ristorante Pietrino, a lovely Italian restaurant as well.
