A short walk from Benesse House is this Andō Tadao creation. A work of art itself, the museum consists of a series of cool concrete-walled spaces sitting snugly underground. Lit by natural light, it provides a remarkable setting for several Monet water-lily paintings, some monumental sculptures by Walter de Maria and installations by James Turrell. Outside is the Chichū garden, created in the spirit of Monet's garden in Giverny.
