Nagoya Boston Museum

January 10, 2011

Today was dedicated to exploring more of Nagoya, starting with...Starbucks. Followed by Tower Records, then Nagoya / Boston Museum of Fine Arts, which is currently hosting a collection of over 140 ukio-e (woodblock) prints. These prints, hundreds of years old, are full of astonishing texture and photographic details: vivid colors, intricate fabric prints, embossed paper creating the effect of tatami mats, flowers, and designs. Unfortunately, I couldn't take photos inside the galleries, but I did get a couple of photos outside the entrance.   There were numerous young ladies resplendent in full kimono glory since today is 成人の日, Coming of Age Day. The women looked like colorful tropical birds, but for the young men it was strictly a black-suit affair.
