While in Tokyo for a short visit we just wanted to take in as many art museums as we could. We were informed that this museum does not have a permanent collection but would have some temporary ones. To our amazement when we entered the museum, the temporary exhibit is The Lady and the Unicorn which is on loan from the Musee de Cluny in Paris. We are very familiar with the Lady and the Unicorn as we have visited this exhibit a number of times when in Paris. In Paris the six tapestries are displayed in separate rooms but here in Tokyo the six are displayed in one very large circular hall and the effect is amazing. There are also videos in side rooms that emphasize the make-up of the tapestries. Unfortunately for us, the audio is in Japanese, not our native language, but the video none the less is informative. The exhibit is only in Tokyo until July 15th but then travels to The National Museum of Art in Osaka until October 20th.
