For a limited time, the Kyoto City Kyocera Museum will be hosting an exhibition of works from French sculptor François Pompon (1855 - 1933). Pompon was known for focusing on animals as the theme of his artistic works, and around 90 of them will be displayed at the event. A number of the showcased works are on loan from the Gunma Museum of Art, which is home to Japan's most comprehensive Pompon collection.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1800 yen. Reservations are not required, but priority will be given to those with advance bookings during peak periods.

Getting there

The Kyoto City Kyocera Museum is located approximately 8 minutes on foot from Higashiyama Station, which is served by the Tozai Subway Line.

For those who plan to drive to the museum, it is located around 7 kilometers from the Meishin Expressway's Kyoto Higashi IC exit. There are paid parking lots nearby to the museum, but taking public transportation is recommended.
