Surrounded by greenery and facing the open sea, the ocean and the sun are omnipresent at the Yokosuka Museum of Art. The front entrance with its well-kept lawn provides a panoramic view of large ships traveling across the horizon.海と光を感じられる横須賀美術館は、三方を豊かな緑に囲まれ、海に向かって大きく開けた敷地に建っている。芝生に覆われた正面からは、ゆったりと往来する大型船の姿がパノラマの如く見渡せる

of large ships traveling across the horizon.

At one with this blessed environment, almost half of the Museum’s structure is ensconced beneath the ground. Yet, the Museum is accessible from both the ocean and mountain-side, so that visitors can walk through the building from one entrance to the other. On the ocean-side are a restaurant and a workshop space, while the plaza facing the mountain leads to the rooftop and down into the Museum. The structural design of the building offers visitors constant contact with the surrounding environment.

In order to weather the salty sea wind, the Museum’s interior is protected with glass. One step inside the front entrance, and there are circular windows of all sizes on all sides of the building with sunbeams pouring in and filling the entire space with light.

Special exhibits are held 6 times a year, exhibits from the museum’s collection are held 4 times, and the Taniuchi Rokuro Gallery puts on 4 shows a year as well. The Museum collection dates back to the Taisho era (1912-1926), boasts works from the pre and post-war Showa era (1926-1989), and includes numerous masterpieces. Artists associated with the city of Yokosuka are also displayed here. The Museum’s collection aims to trace the history of 20th Century Japanese art.
