“Worth a visit if you have some time to spare before a flight.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This is an interesting gallery tucked behind a large business/shopping complex and next to a park just a short walk from the airport. The exhibits, when we visited in Feb 13, were mostly Japanese with the upstairs space being closed temporarily. Where translated information was available (in many of the spaces it was not) it was good to get an insight into the period the art, clothes and ornaments were produced. It was very peaceful and quiet and I am glad we visited.

“Cutting Edge Ehibitions of Asian Art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

We saw two wonderful exhibitions Nature and Haiku - which follows the path of Matsuo Basho as interpreted by Kaidin and photographer Uwe Ommer. This was paired with and Esprits du Japon, which is a photographic exhibition by Suzanne Held. After the latter we came away with a deeper understanding of Shintoism and Buddhism in Japan. I made us want to pack our bags and go to Kyoto

“Japan, China, Far East, India”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My wife loved the architecture, and the stunning photo exhibition reminded her of her own visit to Japan. Having a few carefully selected exhibited items avoids visual exhaustion from over-exposure,
