  • INAX LIVE MUSEUM Exhibition ‘Spectacular! Nagoya’s Mosaic Era’ To Open Soon

    02.November.2021 | SPOT

    The INAX LIVE MUSEUM in Tokoname, Aichi Prefecture, specializes in sharing the beauty in soil and pottery. Between November 6 2021 and March 22 2022, the museum will be holding the ‘Spectacular! Nagoya Mosaic Era’ exhibition. 

     

     

    One wall will be covered in countless tiny pieces of tile, glass, and stone to create one large mosaic mural. The architectural decorations have been colored in a Pointillism style, where even bold shades mysteriously fade with time to blend in with everyday landscapes.

     

    During the era of high economic growth, mosaic art flourished in and around Nagoya, boosted by the national demand for decorating the newly built reinforced concrete buildings. Nagoya was also home to leading pottery producing areas such as Tokoname, Seto, Tajimi, with close links to Gifu which was known for its marble production. A Yabashi Marble Shop (now Yabashi Marble) was also located in Nagoya. Architect Murano Tōgo’s Maruei Department Store, painter Yabashi Rokurou’s piece in the Aichi Prefectural Office West Building, Kitagawa Tamiji’s mural which integrates with the architecture of the Seto Library… Each piece was made during this period. Many murals have been lost to rebuilding in the half-century that has since passed, but the remaining pieces still retain their brilliance.

     

    The exhibition will focus on the years between the late 1950’s and 1970’s, featuring photos of 17 impressive pieces crafted during this golden age of Nagoya mosaic art, along with part of the ceiling painting from the Central Japan Building (Previously the China-Japan Building). The art from the old Nagoya Castle Hotel which was stored in the museum will also be on display, as well as both murals from the old Kagome Building lobby. You will be amazed at the expressive art, the masterful use of color, and the detailed handiwork.

     

     

     

    Step into the world of murals and learn all about soil and pottery at the INAX LIVE MUSEUM, just one of Nagoya’s many impressive attractions.

  • Learn the Secrets of Ninjas From a Pro With the Online Ninja Experience

    24.January.2021 | ANIME&GAME

    With people around the world restricted when it comes to travel, Japan, like other countries, has seen a sharp drop in tourism. To combat that, Odawara Tourism Association has announced the “Online Ninja Experience,” an online event that people can sign up to to enjoy Japanese culture remotely—specifically, ninjas.

    Ninjas are known for favouring stealth and secrecy over strength and combat. Their goal is using intelligence to infiltrate without causing a ruckus, but they are of course equipped with lightweight weapons that can still bring a person down should it come to it. The online experience therefore will not showcase any kind of flashy action, and participants won’t be taught how to cast any Naruto-style Rasengans.

    Those who join the online experience will learn what a ninja truly is and why they respect peace along with helpful hints that will prove beneficial in the daily lives of those in modern society.

    The 40-minute live tour will take place from the ninja building at Odawara Castle and be hosted by real ninja living in the modern day. There will be guide commentary available in both English and Japanese.
