Boro Exhibition in Tokyo
These are photos from an exhibition I discovered by accident in Tokyo 2 days ago. The exhibition wasn't opening till the next day but I was allowed in because I was leaving that evening and I'd had my business card translated into Japanese which helped. Some stuff about the exhibition can be found at http://www.amusemuseum.com/english/exhibition/index.html and there is a book called 'Boro: rags and tatters from the Far North of Japan'. I wasn't able to buy the book as the shop wasn't open and I haven't been able to find a copy online as most places have sold out. Instead I got a different book which is all in Japanese and available in japan at Kinokuniya Bookshop in Tokyo if anyone is going there.
