So you like art? That’s great — but I’m afraid you’re going to have to be a little more specific. That’s because — in Japan — you can’t just like art. You have to like a certain type of art: old art, for instance, or contemporary art, yoga (Western-style) or nihonga (Japanese-style) painting. There are plenty of categories to choose from.

And in case you were wondering, choosing to enjoy them all is not an option — not all at once, anyway. Unless, that is, you plan to visit the massive and eclectic Art Fair Tokyo being held April 2, 3 and 4 at Tokyo International Forum near Yurakucho Station. Or unless you happen to go by the name of Yuji Yamashita.
