Takao Trick Art Museum

We visited Takao Trick Art Museum today, a great outing for a rainy day! All of the art was entirely one dimensional, but through the camera lens, really comes to life as 3D. There were also cards to use, while in the museum, to cover one eye with and get the same 3D effect.

This just looked like rocks to me, until I looked through my camera, then the face appeared.

Saying hello to the elephant.

This was a mural painted on the wall, no steps at all!

This was a fun one. Eva is laying down on the floor, and the picture taking spot is on a platform. They actually have footprints on the ground indicating where to stand for the best shot.

Once again, this is just painted on the wall.

Eva feeding the giraffe. Doesn’t that tongue look real?!

Hungry, hungry hippos.

I love how these turned out! The girls  were laying on the floor.

Hold on, Ella!

Ella on a platter.

Who shrunk daddy?

Ella’s new friend.


Eva’s new trick.

Don’t get too close ladies!

Heave, ho.

This money had us ALL fooled! I thought of my Grandpa Springer with this one!

Afterwards we enjoyed a drink on this lovely patio. In Japan there are vending machines EVERYWHERE! (I will blog on that at a later date!)

There was such a beautiful view.


The Trick Art Museum is located at the base of Mt. Takao. There are many hiking trails in this area, so we walked around for a while. I hear this area is especially beautiful (and popular) when the leaves change color in mid-November. We will have to return!

You always run into a temple, it seems!

It was a great day!
