Beautiful Japanese Lighting at Meguro Gajoen

Only from Jul 3rd to Aug 9th, 2015!

I went to Meguro Gajoen in Tokyo to see ”和のあかり x 百段階段展," Japanese Lighting x 100 step stairway exhibition in English, and it was really worthwhile! Meguro Gajoen was first built as first-class Japanese style restaurant and became first banquet and wedding ceremony hall in Japan, and now is a hotel with beautiful Japanese banquet and wedding ceremony halls.

Meguro Gojoen has famous stairway of 100 steps and banquet rooms which were designated as one of cultural assets of Tokyo. In this summer, you can see lighting exhibition there. Each banquet room has its own theme of lighting, you can enjoy various Japanese lighting. The building itself is also very artistic.

It is very good to go there in kimono because the architecture is very Japanese.
Now free exhibition tickets will be offered if you rent outdoor kimono or yukata at Kimono Photo Sutdio WA, and the staff will take you Meguro Gajoen, too. The exhibition is till Aug 9th, 2015.
