The Adachi Museum of Art is located in Yasugi City, Shimane Prefecture, and was founded in 1970. It has ranked first in Japanese gardens for eleven consecutive years and is known as “the most beautiful garden in Japan”. Six creative gardens totaling more than 50,000 square meters, including “Dry Landscape Garden”, “White Sand and Green Pine Garden”, “Moss Garden” and “Pond Garden”, use the method of borrowing scenery to visually blend the mountains and rivers that do not belong to the park with other scenery. As a whole, it embodies the unity of “harmony”.
Adhering to Mr. Adachi’s creative concept of “a garden is a painting”, the garden vividly displays the landscape that does not belong to the park, but the visual effects produced by the angle, so that although the whole garden looks small and exquisite, it is still beautiful. The main scene is patchwork and has a strong sense of hierarchy.
