There’s a certain irony that Keith Haring, icon of the 80’s New York street culture, should have such a large collection of his work far away from urban American life in a forest to the south of Yatsugadake Mountains.
The museum being relatively remote means you practically have the whole place to yourself. The museum itself is a grand contemporary building, with the exhibition displayed throughout a series of dark passageways and large cavernous rooms, with a roof terrace break in the middle.
Well worth a visit if you’re in the area. And if you’re not on a cheapo budget, you might like to stay at the arty Key Forest Hotel attached to the museum, and part of the same resort.
