Hello everyone! Do you usually go to museums and art galleries?
Tokyo has more than enough art museums and galleries to explore, so we are lucky to have lots of opportunities to enjoy art.
In this event, we will visit the Tokyo Photographic Art Museum (TOP Museum) in Ebisu. This museum is unique in Japan for its mixture of visual cultures like photographs and video imagery and boasts an incredibly rich and substantial collection, including works by famous Japanese artists like Araki Nobuyoshi, Shinoyama Kishin and Ueda Shoji.
Further, TOP Museum boasts a large theater inside where they hold movie screenings on a variety of themes.
This time, we are going to look at the “TOP Collection” which has the theme of “Enjoying and Learning”.
This is a rare opportunity to mingle with other participants from different backgrounds, freely express your opinions on the artworks, and to further your understanding on how we look at art. This is guaranteed to give you a fresh and different art appreciation experience than going to the museum by yourself.
Oh, did we mention that it is located within the Ebisu Garden Place complex?
The most stylish cafes and restaurants that Tokyo has to offer await you and your new friends after the event.
Come and join us on this trip and enjoy some “art appreciation” this autumn!
