The National Museum of Western Art
Monorail back to Shimboshi and then a train back to Ueno to the The National Museum of Western Art. To see another art exhibition:
‘Hokusai and Japonisme’ an exhibition of western artists including Monet,Degas, Gaugin and Cézanne influenced by Japanese art. Particularly ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai . There are drawings, paintings, woodblock prints, glassware and timber parquetry furniture. A stunning exhibition.
Coffee at Starbucks at Shibuya,we look at a Kimono shop where the prices are around $1000 au dollars or more, such gorgeous colours and designs. We walk past ‘piss alley’ all the tiny restaurants all packed so we went for dinner at Shinjuku.
We find a place selling gyoza, as usual we seem to pick places full of the locals no tourists. The soccer is on the television , food is great but unfortunately smoking is allowed inside restaurants.
