Arts & Performances

Kyoto is a birth place of traditional arts, crafts and performances of Japan,
and has been maintaining its tradition with the coming of the new age.
Here GTK'd like to introduce the monthly art highlights, museums, creators etc.

Early autumn Exhibition by Kyoto Netsuke Art Museum

Netsuke are special accessories for pilcases or tobacco pouches which are hung from the obi sashs of kimono.
This time exhibition features the netsuke miniature sculpture by artistMotomasa Kurita (b. 1976). His talents recognized by the Japanese government at the tender age of 23 and the recipient of several prestigious awards since, Kurita creates pieces full of fascination and wit.
You can enjoy the elaborate skill and beauty of netsuke in a traditional Japanese setting which used to be a gorgeous samurai estate.
