On Oct. 29, Nakamuraya, a restaurant founded in 1901 in Shinjuku that became famous for Indian curry as well as Western- and Japanese-style confectionery, is opening a new building that will include the Nakamuraya Salon Museum on the third floor.
Its inaugural exhibition, “Born Here, Yet to Be Born Here” reflects on the restaurant’s past, when it was known as a “salon” where young artists often met and socialized. Around 50 works by some of the restaurant’s patrons, including Morie Ogiwara, Tsune Nakamura and Yaichi Aizu, will be on display; Oct. 29-Feb. 15.
