A special event taking place at the Sano Art Museum will explore the calligraphy works of Shoko Kanazawa (1985 - ).

The exhibition will showcase around 50 of Kanazawa's works from throughout her career.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1100 yen.

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.

I had the good fortune to meet her when she had an exhibition in Kamakura. She is so big-hearted and her work is marvelous.
