The Miho Museum exhibits Mihoko Koyama's private collection of antiques that come from both Asian and Western ancient civilisations. The rotating special exhibitions are centred on Japanese history, culture, and art.
Aside from the impressive and well-preserved collection, the seamless weaving of man-made structures and nature is a sight worth viewing in person.

The museum was designed by renowned architect I.M.Pei whose other distinct works include the Grand Louvre in Paris and the Museum of Islamic Art in Qatar. Each exhibition room was designed with the artefacts in mind, highlighting the best qualities of each item that may go unnoticed.
