His art work of huge or gigantic and sensitive Venetian glass makes me sentimental, felt like heartrending but happy.

A french little girl loves this beautiful bed, she stared this, went to the room again and again… so cute.

MITSUBISHI ICHIGOKAN MUSEUM

MITSUBISHI ICHIGOKAN MUSEUM 1

I went to see the henri toulouse-lautrec Exhibition at the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum in Marunouchi.

MITSUBISHI ICHIGOKAN MUSEUM 2

The Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum is a red brick building, constructed as a Mitsubishi office 117 years ago. It reopened as an art museum in the spring of last year.

The weather was nice on this day, so I strolled leisurely through the vast garden. Near the art museum, there are a lot of interesting shops and stylish cafes like PASS THE BATON and Cath Kidston, so it’s a great place to while away your day off.

Ohnuma Michiyuki pottery Exhibition 1

I visited the Ohnuma Michiyuki pottery Exhibition, now open at shima-shima-ya Tokyo in Shimokitazawa. Mr.Ohnuma is a ceramic artist from Iwate Prefecture.

Cute dot-patterned or deep green bowls are characteristic of his works. This time a very beautiful jet-black bowl that glimmered with gold here and there in the light was displayed as well.

Each of them were splendid blows and looked user-friendly.

Ashura Benimaru Itoh Art Exhibition

ito ashura benimaru exhibition 1

Ashura Benimaru Itoh is an artist, illustrator, designer, director and… his works are so various and stunning.
He said that he didn’t wish to do exhibition before, because his works are always for the people who enjoy products or printed matter.

But this time we could have a chance to meet his “Arts of Melodies”, focus on his work for music.
