KANAZAWA — The 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art in Kanazawa, which was partially closed due to damage from the earthquake on the Noto Peninsula, fully reopened on June 22 after a six-month hiatus.

Visitors, who had long awaited the reopening of the museum’s iconic artwork, “The Swimming Pool,” enjoyed looking up and taking photos from the bottom of the “pool.”

A special exhibition is currently underway, entitled “Lines — Tuning Your Consciousness to the Flow,” while a café-restaurant and museum shop have switched from shortened to normal opening hours.

Mari Hashimoto, a 26-year-old nutritionist, said she planned her visit around the museum’s reopening and traveled from Tokyo with her parents.

“I got interested after seeing the museum on Instagram,” she said with a smile. “It’s a beautiful and mysterious space.”

After the earthquake of January 1, the museum was completely closed until February 5. It was then partially reopened, although 15 badly damaged sections were still closed.
