A special event taking place at the Akita Museum of Art looks at the works of Osamu Watanabe (1980 - ), a Yamaguchi-born contemporary artist who is famous for using resin cream and piping bags to create his unique pieces.
This exhibition will take on the theme of a "Kingdom of Sweets", where models of animals and buildings look almost good enough to eat!
Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen, and no advance reservations are required.
The Akita Museum of Art is located approximately ten minutes on foot from Akita Station, served by the Akita shinkansen, the Ou Main Line, the Uetsu Main Line, and the Oga Line.
