Light/Electricity/God: Thunderbolts and Art

As a museum located in an area where thunderstorms often occur, we have planned an exhibition in which you can enjoy art presented with “thunderbolts,” a meteorological phenomenon we are familiar with, as the theme. There are works representing thunder, works expressing images of the thunder god or thunderbolts, and works representing electricity, light, or sound suggested by thunderbolts. Workshops and other events are also planned.

Stylish Old Imari Ware - Pottery Designed to Edo Tastes

Imari ware was the first Japanese-made porcelain, which began to be produced in the present Arita, Saga at the beginning of the Edo period. From the mid-Edo period onwards, once the daily life of the people became easier, luxurious and splendid styles were replaced by the production of practical tableware that suited the townsfolk's lifestyle flourishing in Edo. Shown in Japan for the first time, this collection introduces the background of Edo “sophistication.”
