The nature and seasonal contrasts of Japan have helped shaped its culture, and Japanese artists have always looked for beauty in their surroundings. Tokyo’s National Museum of Modern Art will celebrate this, with an exhibition of crafts created with natural materials.
Witness Japanese masterpieces of ceramics, yarn, maki-e lacquer, dyeing techniques and gold. Pieces include Moriguchi Kako’s famous yuzen kimono and Akatsuka Jitoku’s inkstone box.
The exhibit runs throughout December, 10am–5pm (last entry 4:30pm). ¥250adult/¥130 students.
