Announcing a new Meetup for Tokyo Museum Meetup Group!
What: DayTrip No.6:Museum Hopping in Izu & Shuzenji,Shizuoka prefecture
When: July 5, 2009 9:00 AM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
There are some cities called as ?ShoKyoto? in not-too distant where we can take a day trip to.
ShoKyoto, which literally means ?small Kyoto,? is a nickname given to the townscape that is similar to Kyoto. Most of them were built by the daimyo in and after the Muromachi period. In the modern times, the places with the features that remind visitors of Kyoto are also named Shokyoto. I don't like this kind of nickname with "small" something though, ?Sho-Kyoto? sounds like worth visiting.
This time, let's go visit Shuzenji which is one of Shokyoto in Shizuoka prefecture and two museums nearby as follows. Places to Visit about Shuzenji (in English) Sano Art Museum (in Japanese)
Exhibition to see is the collection of art works about view of Mt. Fuji including Ukiyoe etc. from Edo period. Sculpture Garden Museum Vangi Museo(in Japanese) Schedule
