Ends in 44 days

In his work, Yutaka Nishimura looks to capture a wild and unaltered version of the everyday in nature. For this reason, he often shots amidst adverse conditions. Nishimura communicates the delight of making a discovery and observing nature, encouraging viewers of his works to go out and try it for themselves. Around 200 pieces will be presented here, including previously unreleased works as well as key pieces such as his “Dormouse” series, which is part of the museum collection, his debut work that takes Japanese red foxes as its subject, and his recently published children’s photo book, “Quadruplet Squirrel Babies,” which is complied from a series on squirrels of Japan. Get a sense for the vibrant life that exists among the rich nature of Japan’s southern Yatsugatake volcanic region. Children visiting the exhibition can also enjoy trying out squirrel themed paper sumo, a rice farming board game, and various other activities available in the children’s area.
