Miniature Life Exhibition: Kochi

Explore the wonders of Tatsuya Tanaka's Miniature World

Apr 3rd
May 9th
Venue: Kochi Prefectural Museum of Art When: Apr 3rd - May 9th 2021, 9:00am - 5:00pm

A special exhibition taking place at the Kochi Prefectural Museum of Art looks at works from Kumamoto-born Tatsuya Tanaka, a photographer who focuses on miniatures. His creations are humorous and thought-provoking, and he often uses everyday items in unique ways - for instance, broccoli and parsley are used to simulate trees. The miniature scenes that Tanaka photographs have gained him quite the following - in fact, his Instagram account (@tanaka_tatsuya) has almost 3 million followers.

The special exhibition will showcase around 120 of Tanaka's works, including pieces from the new "Stay Safe" series. Best of all, the works are all able to be freely photographed by the exhibition attendees.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen.

The Kochi Prefectural Museum of Art is located under 10 minutes on foot from the Kenritsu Bijutsukan-Dori tram stop.

For those who opt to drive, the museum is around 10 minutes from the Kochi Expressway's Kochi Interchange, or 15 minutes from the Kochi Expressway's Nankoku Interchange. Free on-site parking is available.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! 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.
