This event has ended.

In Japan there’s a saying, “Enjoy the cool breeze”. Meaning that by fanning yourself with a cool breeze, you can bear the heat or cool off, it is also used when not speaking about actual physical sensations. For example, by hanging a picture of snow in the middle of summer, gazing at an aquarium, looking through something transparent like glass and feeling the ice or something else cool with your eyes and ears, you can take your mind off the heat. This Japanese wisdom handed down from ancient times is a way of enjoying summer.

In this edition of Art Colors, Park Hotel Tokyo brings the wisdom of Japan’s forebears to life, letting you “enjoy the cool breeze with art”. This show focuses on six artists on the scene today: Rieko Fujinami, Junji Yamada, Yumeka Fujita, Aiko Sakamoto, Toru Tohiguchi, and Kanako Watanabe. The Atrium, which is laid out around an open space, gives a feeling of freedom you can only experience at the Park Hotel Tokyo and invites you to enjoy the cool breeze with your eyes and experience the Japanese summer with your ears and taste buds, too.
