Walls & Bridges at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum
Jul 22, 2021–Oct 09, 2021
This curation exhibition brings together the works of different artists who don’t have much in common in style or background. So what brings them all together? It is said they all have transformed their personal challenges, or “walls,” into creative opportunities. And the “bridges,” keep their creative vision afloat.
Price: 800 JPY
Location: Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum
Mount Takao BBQ
13 July 2021 ~
As Mountain Day falls this weekend, why not travel to Mount Takao to get a taste of nature. Climb up all the way or use the ropeway to the higher level.
While normally Beer Mount on Mount Takao is an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink BBQ restaurant, this year due to the State of Emergency there is a change in the menu. But you can still enjoy a “craft BBQ”, “Tengu hotdogs” and soft drinks.
