Ginza Galleries will hold GARONOYAKAI on Friday, May 26, 2017. Ginza Galleries’ GARONOYAKAI event that began in 2004 is an annual event held in galleries from 5-chome to 8-chome in Ginza. Participating galleries will be open on this day until 9:00 p.m. and will offer refreshments and other services to let those who usually feel intimidated by art galleries enjoy carefree interaction with gallerists and artists.
GARONOYAKAI will feature spectacular exhibits in each gallery. All are welcome to enjoy the gallery experience and be inspired by fantastic art. Participating galleries are marked by lanterns made by Gifu washi paper artisans. We await your visit.
In addition to the annual gallery tours, this year we will also hold an event called Spring Ginza Night where you can enjoy cocktails (5 types) at bars in Ginza for a set price. You can also download a gallery map from the official website to use as a tool for freely enjoying the galleries on your own.
