A monster exhibit is coming to the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art this April.
Fifty works by Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890) from the collection of the Van Gogh Museum will be on display in Okazaki from April 2.
The exhibit left Holland and opened at Huis Ten Bosch in Nagasaki. It then traveled to South Korea in late July of last year. Following its sojourn in Kyoto, it will move on to Sendai and Hiroshima.
The exhibition includes a number of world-famous works by Van Gogh, including: "By the Seine," "In the Café: Agostina Segatori in Le Tambourin," "Wheatfield with Partridge," "A Crab on its Back," "Café Table with Absinthe," and "Self-portrait with Grey Felt Hat."
Get ready for long lines and craning your neck to see above and around a crowd of art loving pensioners.
The exhibit runs until 19 May 2013.
The museum is in the Okazaki section of Kyoto, which is a short ride from central Kyoto.
