Sand art museum

Delicate "sand" creating superb story

Sand art museum was opened in November 2006, and open-air museum with the various sand material sculptures are displayed .

Because the sculptures are made of sand, they are delicate and eventually easily collapse. Mr. Katsuhiko Chaen, was born in Satsuma city, Kagoshima and is nationally and internationally active as a sand sculpture producer, produced these statues. Mr. Katsuhiko Chaen is attractive enough to be chosen as "top 100 Japanese people to be respected in the world."
