Kirishima Open-Air Museum is Kagoshima Prefecture’s premier center for cultural and artistic exchange where visitors can enjoy sculptures of high artistic value seamlessly exhibited in the natural landscapes of the Kirishima woods, while appreciating the beauty of nature itself.

The Open-Air Gallery exhibits original works by artists from all over Japan and around the world who visited the magnificent landscape that is Kirishima and created works that best showcase the nature, history and culture of the region. Guests can enjoy the transformations that each season brings to our outdoor exhibits.

We also take pride in our Art Hall:, the gateway to the museum, exhibiting permanent collections and special exhibits as well as housing a multi-purpose space for artistic education and workshops. A café, museum shop and mini-library are also there to make your visit to Kirishima Open-Air Museum complete.

We hope you enjoy the combined beauty of nature and art in serene Kirishima.
