Visiting Taro Okamoto’s Museum

レスリー先生

Growing up in a small town in America, I had few chances to see great art exhibits, except for the Salvador Dali museum in nearby St. Petersburg. Being able to see so many different art museums and exhibits is one thing I really love about living in Japan. This weekend we went to Tokyo and went to three art museums in one day: the Taro Okamoto Memorial Museum, the Nezu museum, and the National Museum of Western Art. Out of those, I enjoyed the Taro Okamoto museum the most.

 I knew Taro Okamoto created the Tower of the Sun for the Osaka EXPO in 1970, but I recently became interested in his art after finding out that the inspiration for the Tower of the Sun was Jomon Era art.

Taro Okamoto’s museum is located in what was his old house. It’s in the Omotesando area of Tokyo, which has a lot of interesting buildings, such as this Prada store that looks like it’s made of bubble wrap.

I really enjoyed this unique museum and enjoying his art inside his house and outside in his garden.
