【One-day art and architecture bus tours with lectures】A. Kagawa Prefectural Government Office East Building / Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum Japan / MIMOCA
Origins of Kagawa as the art prefecture
In the footsteps of Genichiro Inokuma, who connected the world's creators to his homeland
Kagawa Prefecture has earned a reputation as Japan's "art prefecture," most prominently as host of the Setouchi Triennale. Despite being Japan's smallest prefecture, Kagawa is a treasure trove of world-beating aesthetic riches irresistible to fans of art, design and architecture. Unraveling the history of Kagawa's transformation into a hub for art, we find Genichiro Inokuma serving as the common link in a network of internationally-renowned artists and architects whose work truly took flight on the spectacular stage of Kagawa, including Isamu Noguchi and Kenzo Tange.
A totally new venture for the Marugame Genichiro-Inokuma Museum of Contemporary Art, these one-day bus tours will trace the footsteps of Inokuma as a cultural mediator, taking in the Kagawa Prefectural Government Office East Building designed by Kenzo Tange (Options A & B), Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum Japan (Option A), and Shikoku Mura Museum (Option B). Don't miss this opportunity to savor at your leisure the "world-beating aesthetic riches" that Genichiro Inokuma helped bring to fruition, while listening to expert lectures from curators and other knowledgeable dedicated staff.
