Roppongi Art Night, which was cancelled last year due to the March 11 disasters, was back with a bang this year, featuring large scale expressions of Yayoi Kusama’s famous obsession with dots, Tohoku-related projects, and events through the night of March 24. For roughly 24 hours, art lovers congregated at the event’s main venues — the Roppongi Hill complex and Tokyo Midtown — and nearby areas and galleries to see enjoy arts of all media and genres, some tacked to the wall and some floating in the air.
