Enjoy a delightful exhibit on charming kawaii—Japan’s “cute” culture—in this gallery dedicated to Japanese art.
The current Bijutsu-kan Gallery show, “Kawaii: Japan’s Cute Culture,” takes a look at this pop-culture phenomenon that’s swept the globe.
Kawaii means cute or loveable—and represents an obsession with all things darling, like Hello Kitty, which is included in the exhibit. You’ll discover how kawaii is rooted deep in Japan’s Shinto past and how it’s become a core aspect of Japanese culture—and a new form of self-expression.
Tour a replica Tokyo apartment of a kawaii superfan bursting with all things precious—and prepare for major cuteness overload.
