Housed in an I. M. Pei–designed building and tucked among pine-covered hills southeast of Kyoto, the Miho Museum reflects the vision of its founder, the late Mihoko Koyama, a Japanese spiritual leader. In addition to displaying items that complement her vast collection of Asian and Western antiques, the store offers an array of Japanese pottery, books, CDs, even a pricey bottle of biotic red wine made by an Italian vintner, all of which pay homage to the Japanese notion of wa, or harmony.
