In the wake of the recently held Art Fair Tokyo, Kyoto is following up with its own alternative in Art Kyoto. Organizers will, however, eschew the international art fair model seen in Tokyo and do what Kyoto does best — represent Japan.

Keigo Ishibashi, a member of Art Kyoto’s executive committee, says he wants to flip the way things have been done until now.
