Takanori Ogisu (1901-1986) was a Japanese style painter who spent more than 50 years of his life in France. A special exhibition at Kyoto's Museum EKI commemorates 120 years since Ogisu's birth, and there will be around 70 of his paintings displayed at the event. Many of the works depict street corners in Paris and glimpses into everyday life at the time.
Admission to the exhibition is priced at 1100 yen for adults, 900 yen for high school and university students, and 500 yen for elementary and junior high school-aged students.
Museum EKI Kyoto is located within the Kyoto Station building, on the 7th floor adjacent to the Isetan department store. The station is served by a wide variety of lines, including the Tokaido Shinkansen, the Tokaido Main Line, the Nara Line, and the Sanin Main Line.
For those who plan to drive, parking is available at the station, which is charged at 600 yen for the first hour, and 300 yen for every 30 minutes thereafter.
