A special exhibition taking place at the Setagaya Art Museum looks at artists who worked in neighborhoods served by the Den-en-toshi Line and Setagaya Line, including the likes of Sangenjaya and Sakura-shinmachi.
Some of the works on display at the event include pieces from Japanese-style painter Hirafuku Hyakusui, photographer Kineo Kuwabara, and Western-style painters Junkichi Mukai and Kotaro Midorikawa.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 200 yen.
