Kyoto-born Atsuhiko Misawa is one of Japan's most prominent contemporary wood carving artists, and one of his major works is the "Animals" series which he started back in 2000. The collection of life-sized animals has proven extremely popular with both the young and the young at heart, and they will be displayed at Osaka's Abeno Harukas Art Museum from November 21st through to January 17th 2021.

As the museum is located on the 16th floor of the Abeno Harukas building, it presents an opportunity to enjoy these wood carvings in unique surroundings. Adult admission to the event is 1400 yen.

Getting there

The Abeno Harukas Art Museum is located just a minute on foot from the Osaka Abenobashi Station, served by the Minami Osaka Line of the Kintetsu Railway, or two minutes on foot from Tennoji Station on the JR Osaka Loop Line.

As there is no on-site parking available, visitors to the museum are advised to use public transport where possible.

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.
