Fushigi Hakubutsukan [Wonder Museum] by SUMI TAKAMASA
不思議博物館 Fushigi Hakubutsukan means WONDER MUSEUM. SUMI TAKAMASA, contemporary artist living in Fukuoka is a director of this private museum. This new space exists in his own garden besides his house and factory. It takes approx. 1 hour by car from central of Fukuoka city.
In short, the museum's collection works are his past ones. Open only weekend (every Sunday and Japanese national holiday as a rule), you need check the open schedule by his website (sorry, only in Japanese. If you need help, please send me the message.)
Sumi's works are very unique, confusing real animal and articficial items. It can be said a kind of OTAKU artworks. You can also see his maniac book collection here.
