About MOT
In this coming November, we will open the museum;
"MOT: MUSEUM OF TRAVEL" for a limited time.

It will be located in the Hill Side West,
one of the complex buildings along kyu yamate-dori realized after more then 30 years
by a representative architect of Japan, Mr. Fumihiko Maki.
it is open from 5th to 27th of November, 2005.
We will have various experiences with visitors to the museum.
We also plan to hold some events before opening.

The theme of MOT is "Encounter of Different Perspectives".
You may have an experience to go for travel and see ordinary things as unordinary,
by taking a distance from daily life.

By a tool of Museum,
MOT will offer the opportunities to "Encounter of Different Perspectives",
through exhibitions, events, parties, a shop and a cafe.

We are looking forward to having each visitor
encountering many people and objects,
sharing experiences at the same time in the same place,
by watching, listening, talking, thinking, eating and drinking in our museum,
and taking them back into their everyday life after.

Let's see what unordinary perspectives will make you think.
