“Kawaii – Japan’s Cute Culture” opened in October 2015 in the Japan Pavilion in the Bijutsu-kan Gallery space. It replaced “Spirited Beasts from Ancient Stories to Anime Stars,” which debuted back in 2010. These sorts of cultural exhibits have a shelf life of about five years, so it’s likely that what you see below will be presented through sometime around October 2020. If you’re unfamiliar with where the exhibit is located, you basically head straight back through the Pavilion, over the bridge, and then take a left across from the Kidcot station and before arriving at the Mitsukoshi Department Store.
Visit at your leisure. There’s typically only a handful of people looking around.
