U.S. Magazine Ranks Adachi Museum Gardens at Number One for 11th Consecutive Year

In the 2013 Japanese Garden Rankings (Shiosai Ranking) by the Sukiya Living Magazine "Journal of Japanese Gardening (JOJG)", the gardens of the Adachi Museum of Art were ranked at number one for the tenth consecutive year. The latest rankings were published in the Nov/Dec issue. The rankings have been published every year since 2003 in order to focus on how visitors can relax and feel comfortable, rather than on size and/or name recognition. More than 900 sightseeing and historical spots in Japan were considered, and 30 experts visited and evaluated 50-70 of these. In the final rankings, "quality", which includes the balance between the garden and the building and staff responses to visitors, was prioritized.
