A special exhibition at Kyoto's Museum EKI will explore various photographs of David Bowie in Kyoto that were captured by Japanese photographer Masayoshi Sukita. Sukita met David Bowie in 1972 and accompanied him on his world tour the following year, and the friendship and working relationship between the duo lasted over 40 years until Bowie's death in 2016. Bowie visited Japan on numerous occasions, and had a fondness for the country which will be showcased in Sukita's works on display.

Adult admission is priced at 900 yen.
