Building Design

floor image The world of Daisetz Suzuki is presented in an idyllic setting that is typical of Kanazawa: landscaped gardens incorporating stone walls and streams set against a background of vivid greenery sloping down from the Kodatsuno plateau.
The museum consists of three wings connected by corridors: an Entrance Wing, an Exhibition Wing and a Contemplative Wing, and three gardens: the Vestibule Garden, the Roji Garden and the Water Mirror Garden. Visitors can learn about the philosophy of Daisetz Suzuki and engage in their own contemplation as they move through the wings and gardens.
