Closed Mondays (but holidays and Jan.17 and 24 Mar.7 to be opened) Dec.29 to Jan.1

 Three of Munakata’s pleasures were memories of his hometown, relishing tea with his family, and drawings surrounded by favorite artworks; things and scenes of Aomori, Wife’s conducts for making tea as well as favorite tools, and his own figures for drawing. These pleasures were in fact Munakata’s daily routine, and the artwork of “Shiko San-Raku” is, in a sense, the work of his daily events, each of which is humorously drawn in rich colors, in light lines and touches. In this exhibition are displayed the integration of Munakata’s hobbies and tastes, together with his active livelihood.
