The Iwate Museum of Art is hosting a traveling exhibition from the Louvre Museum, the first stop on a tour around the three prefectures worst hit by the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

The exhibition in Morioka, Iwate Prefecture, is showcasing 23 art objects from the Paris museum’s collection under the theme of “encounter” through June 6, hoping to lift the spirits of disaster victims and send a message of support and solidarity.
