Foreign residents of Tokyo and environs, take note: the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum In Ueno Park is offering their second special preview for foreigners only. Enjoy art with no lines, and it’s FREE! Monday May 26 4 to 5:30 pm. I went to the first such program, for the Nihonga show, and it was a pleasure to wander the galleries with almost no people in them. You’ve seen the (rather provocative) poster on the subway, now see the paintings. You need to apply in advance. Details at http://www.tobikan.jp/0526
Balthus, a favorite of mine! Lucky Tokyoites!
