Rei Kamoi was a Japanese contemporary artist known for depicting life moments that are rarely deemed as "art-worthy", including portraits of individuals who were under the influence of alcohol. 35 years after his passing, the special exhibition "Resting Time" at Fukuoka's Kurume City Art Museum looks at around 100 of his works, including the award winning "Still Time".

Adult admission to the special exhibition is priced at 1000 yen. Do note that the museum closes on Mondays if you're planning to visit.

Getting there

The Kurume City Art Museum is located approximately 15 minutes on foot from the Nishitetsu Kurume Station, served by the Tenjin Omuta Line.

For those who are driving to the museum, take the Kurume Interchange from the Kyushu Expressway, and it's a five minute drive from there. Paid parking is available at a cost of 200 yen for the first hour, and then 100 yen for each additional 30 minutes thereafter.

I'm an Australian who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan - specifically Tokyo and Niigata. I've  visited 44 of 47 prefectures, with only Kagoshima, Miyazaki and Kumamoto left to check out. I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

So many! I love that there are still events taking place, though! It gives me hope that things are getting better, for them to be holding these kinds of exhibitions! :)
