Adult admission to the exhibition is priced at 500 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 wonder why artists picture Fuji-san more slim and pointed than it is?

That's a very interesting observation, actually! Now I'm thinking about it too...
