Learn about Japan culture through sightseeing in Kyoto


~When you come to Kyoto… SUIBOKUGA ~

A painting drawn by making shades with ink and water,it`s SUIBOKUGA.

If you take a step forward from the vague sense of a monotone world, you can come into contact with the very individual sensibilities of each artist.

The impetus for this is the “Sesshu Legend Exhibition” being held at the Kyoto National Museum.

Originally, you will go from the 3rd floor to the 2nd floor to the 1st floor, but before that, please participate in a workshop called “めくって雪舟” held on the 2nd floor.

Unfortunately, the workshop is only available in Japanese, but by comparing the ink paintings of Mt. Fuji drawn by five artists with the same composition, you will be able to learn how to enjoy ink painting in a small way.

Just by comparing the brushstrokes of the five artists, the use of shades of ink, and the way they take white space, you will be surprised at how different they are from person to person.

If you cultivate an eye for spotting the differences, and then look around at “SUIBOKUGA,” you may be able to feel that the ink paintings that you have been vaguely looking at until now are works full of life.

Why don’t you take this opportunity to see the works of national treasures with your own eyes and stimulate your sensibilities?(o^―^o)
