Art in Yushima Seido

湯島聖堂 (Confucian temple Yushima, Bunkyō, Tokyo, Japan – 2010)

More than 10 years have passed since we lived in Japan for a year. 2020 is the year in which every day seems the same. 2010 was far from this reality. Every day was different. Take the day I took today’s photo for instance. I probably wasn’t teaching, and the weather was not good. So I got on the train, rode it to a station I hadn’t gotten off of before, and then roamed the neighborhood–discovering new places and eating at new restaurants.

I wandered into a Confucian temple called Yushima Seido where many art pieces were on display, most getting wet in the downpour that was happening.

Sorry, I don’t have the name of the piece or the artist’s name. Now I know better and take a photo of the name of the work and artist whenever I shoot a piece of art.

Today’s photo comes from more than 10 years ago. Have you ever spent an evening on a Yakatabune? I haven’t. Yet another reason to get back to Japan someday.
