Request to all visitors

●Persons with a fever of 37.0°C or higher or those in poor health are not permitted to enter the artwork facilities.

●Please cooperate in the proper wearing of masks.

In principle, please wear masks correctly in accordance with the “Wearing of Masks” indicated by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare.

[In the case of indoors]
In principle, please wear a mask because it is impossible to maintain a physical distance (2m or more) from other people and because there are likely to be situations in which people will be talking to each other.

[In the case of outdoors]
If you are unable to maintain a physical distance (2m or more) from another person, please wear a mask when conversing with them. In other situations, it is not necessary to wear a mask.
*In summer in particular, it is recommended that masks be removed in outdoor situations where they are not necessary in order to prevent heat stroke.

[About Children wearing masks]
-Children under 2 years old are not required to wear masks.
-Children aged 2 and above but before school age are not required to wear masks uniformly.
-Elementary to high school students are requested to wear masks properly based on the same standards as adults.

●The number of artworks open to the public may be subject to change depending on the status of the spread of the infection.

Depending on the status of the spread of the infection in Japan and other regions, some works and facilities may be closed to the public. Please check our website for the latest information.
