Chihiro Iwasaki (1918-1974) was a Japanese artist who was popular from the late 1950s; she was best known for her paintings and illustrations of flowers and children. While the museum is mainly devoted to her work, it also collects and shows original artwork from children's picture-book artists from around the world. (Note that the museum is closed for a few days between shows, so check their website.)
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
