Point

The D.T. Suzuki Museum was designed by the internationally renowned architect Yoshio Taniguchi, whose unique space was designed to learn and think about the ideas of Daisetz while strolling the grounds. Opened for visitors to engage in self-reflection, this peaceful location in residential surroundings is a place for contemplation and escaping the whirl of everyday life.
