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.

Wow, what a treat. It's great that the museum can hold this exhibition into the new year. Maybe I can see it while it's still on.

I'd like to see this exhibition! Or better to travel to Egypt! :) Now when travelling is impossible the wish to travel is stronger than ever!
