Escalator Entrance

The museum’s entrance is located 60 meters below the main building, and seven flights of escalators, 200 meters in total length, take visitors to the museum. The lighting inside the tunnel constantly change its colors, staging a transitional journey to be enjoyed. Midway through the tunnel is the circular hall, presenting a projection mapping of the largest kaleidoscope in Japan, produced by artists Mitsuru and Yuriko Yoda. To protect the environment and preserve the scenic beauty in the vicinity, the escalator passage was installed underground, which involved excavating the hill side and restoring the surface after the installation work.
