Tourist Tip # 151 Haifa’s Tikotin Museum for Japanese Art

Rather than heading east for Japanese art, head north – to Haifa, where you can feast your eyes on the Middle East's only collection of work from the Land of the Rising Sun.

Haifa is an off-beat sort of city for a variety of reasons, one being that much of it perches on a mountaintop. Another is its self-proclaimed status as home to the Middle East’s only museum of Japanese art.
