  • Haru sakura, sakuya at Hyakudan kaidan
    Sakura art in a cultural heritage setting

    28 March – 21 April 2019
    Hotel Gajoen Tokyo

     
    As winter recedes and spring sets in, flowers bloom and activities pick up. Most of all, the anticipation of cherry blossoms gets almost palpable in Tokyo, as elsewhere in the country.

    Hotel Gajyoen Tokyo, located on the Meguro River famed for cherry blossoms, will host for the first time a special exhibition in the theme of sakura at its “Hyakudan kaidan” (literally “the stairway of one hundred steps”).

    Set in the gorgeous Japanese setting, the exhibition will gather beautiful art and craft works of various genres featuring cherry blossoms.

    Highlights of this exhibition

    This first-time exhibition at Hyakudan-kaidan will showcase a variety of works on the theme of spring and cherry blossoms, including kabuki costumes, antique combs and hairpins (kanzashi), glass, ceramics, paper crafts, quilts and flower arrangement.

    They will adorn the rooms of this unique and stunningly beautiful gallery, which was an early Showa-era banquet venue tastefully decorated with Japanese paintings and art.
