Museum of Modern Art
After that, we went to the modern art museum, which is an impressive structure in the middle of Kanazawa. The main structure is a large round glass building, housing smaller gallery spaces inside, some with permanent exhibitions and some with temporary ones. We decided to be cheap and only pay for the permanent one, but were impressed with what we saw. We liked the "swimming pool". It gave the impression from above that is was a full pool, until you suddenly saw people walking around underneath. The water was sandwiched between two pieces of glass to give the illusion of a full pool. After that, we enjoyed a very tasty lunch overlooking the grounds of the museum.
