Venue: Nagsaki Prefectural Art Museum When: Oct 3rd - Jan 3rd 2021, 10:00am - 6:00pm

The port city of Nagasaki served as Japan's gateway to the outside world for many years, and as a result it also attracted various artists. "Stirrings and Glimmers" is a special event taking place at the Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum, and it looks into how the city has been depicted in artwork.

A range of works will be on display, including Yatarō Noguchi's "Evening in Nagasaki "(1950). Adult admission to the event is priced at 800 yen.

Getting there

The Nagasaki Prefectural Art Museum is located a three minute walk from the Dejima tram stop, a five minute walk from the Nagasaki Shinchi Bus Terminal, or a 15 minute walk from the JR Nagasaki Station.

For those who plan to drive to the museum, it's located approximately 5 minutes from the Nagasaki exit on the Nagasaki Expressway. Paid parking is available on-site, and discounts are given to those who attend museum exhibitions, or the museum cafe and shop. Present your parking ticket at the entrance and the staff will validate it for you.

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.

Nagasaki has such a fascinating history, it would be interesting to see how that is reflected in art.

We only had a few days there when we visited, I'm hoping to go back at some point!

I'd like to visit Nagasaki as it seems to be different city. To the South I went only as far as Hiroshima.

I liked Nagasaki and the other parts of Kyushu I visited, but I think my favorite was Oita Prefecture. Lots of nice onsen there!
