My friend , her students and I went to Nippori to buy cloths . We will sell cushion covers at a fle market in the forth Sunday of this month.. .
After shopping , we moved to Ueno to eat an Anmitsu.
Then I went to the Ueno park alone. I read an article in the morning that the National Museum of Western Art was registered with world's cultural heritage. I 've been in front of the museum several times , but I haven't seen the inside of it.
I tryed to buy a ticket but it was free on the day.
「The museum ’s main building in Tokyo ’s Ueno Park will be the 20th world heritage site in Japan and the first in Tokyo . 」
I took some photos because we were allowed some areas taking photos at the museum.
「The building, completed in 1959, features a winding path staircase that slopes through the center of the galleries. It was the sole building in Japan designed by Le Corbusier, a Paris-based architect.」
「The 17 buildings designed by Le Corbusier were jointly recommended by Japan , France and five other countries 」 「」の中は・・Japan timeより抜粋しました。 click here
I was very surprised the building will be registered as the world heritage , in additon , there were a lot of famous pictures which Monet, Rodin, Gogh wrote. .
It was a good chance to visit another art exhibition.
But I tryed to see 伊藤若冲展 but I gave up to see it because I needed to wait for long time.
My friend invited me to see a kabuki play at Meiji-za yesterday.
The plays were, 1. YA NO NE One of the great classics of the bombastic Aragoto style of acting. GORO is sharpening a gigantic arrow when in a dream he is alerted to his brother being in danger. He explodes in a burst of energy and rushes to save him.
2.OＴＯＫＯ NO HANAMICHI The skilled physician HABU GENSEKI once helped Onnagata* actor UTAEMON from becoming sightless. One day while on stage, UTAEMON gets the letter from the great benefactor GENSEKI, mentioning he suffers distress. (Onnagata means a male actor who plays female rolls in Kabuki.)
Ennosuke Ichikawa who was onnagata impressed me.
I was able to understand the detail during a kabuki play because I got Earphone-Guide for Japanese. After that I really enjoyed to see kabuki plays
