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.

The winter exhibition of Netsuke Art by JIN KUWABARA

泰山木 “Evergreen Magnolia”

猿団子 “Warming Each Other”

Netsuke are special accessories for pill cases or tobacco pouches which are hung from obi(sashes) of kimono. This museum will hold a special winter opening with the Netsuke art by JIN KUWABARA. He carved many pieces of netsuke with motifs of plants, fishes and insects, which were born from his hobbies such as mountain walking and fishing. You can enjoy the delicate and heartwarming world of netsuke.
