A selection of new and past works by myself and sculptural artist, Sakai Takao, will be on display at the art event "Welcome to Engiyado," 9/1~9/30 in Yanaka, Tokyo. The event will be held at Sawanoya Ryokan, a traditional Japanese-style inn, with artworks displayed in the lobby, tatami guest rooms, and even the bath (!). Entrance for viewing is free, and there is also an "art room" available for rent for overnight stays. Family-run ryokan have struggled greatly through the pandemic, and we hope that we can help keep Sawanoya afloat by generating interest in their services, including day-use bath rental and day-use remote work spaces in their tatami rooms. Please consider these unique opportunities for a scenery change and relaxation, and also come enjoy the art!

I will be at the ryokan Friday 9/17 and Saturday 9/18 14:00~20:00 if anyone wants to stop by to say hello :) You can rent a private bath for ¥500/45 minutes per person (up to two people, or two adults and one small child) too, if you are interested. Recommend to call ahead as the baths are popular.
