When I came back to a parking lot, I found this art work..........
64. ワーム・ホール by Watanabe Ikuo

A lot of art works are scattered in the compound, and I felt as if I experienced treasure hunting! I really recommend you to spend half a day enjoying all of the art works here.
If you are lucky, you may encounter some of the artists, and learn about their art works in details directly! No admission fee is required here.
