In the middle of the National Park of the Echizen Kaga Coast,

there is the “God’s island” Oshima with its forest left untouched for 1000 years.

Fukui, Mikuni, Oshima. There stands one and only museum in the world,

where you can feel the time to have its own life.

Brilliant heart museum

Oshima framed by a large window of 4m × 1.5m

The Brilliant Heart Museum has a large window,which reflectsthe

Oshima with its history of1000 years.

It is like a proscenium arch, withinwhich the story of the light transforming itself

through 365 days and 24 hours is staged.

What would people think in this space.

The tearoom of lights makes itsappearance only where the conversation

between the tea culture and the modernart takes place.

The Oshima viewed from the window,which became the innovation to the tearoom.

Seiju Cut

Countless rainbows will appear when sunlight

hits the “Seiju Cut (invented by Seiju Toda)” installed in the museum.

These rainbows change depending on the time of the day, and will keep changing through the seasons.
