Xmas Art Festa is an art event featuring Ginza-area galleries that has been held every year since 2009.
Although Japan does not have a major custom of hanging up art in rooms, it is fun picking out the art you like, similar to choosing clothes or handbags.
This event is intended to propose a lifestyle with art that enriches your daily life and inspires new discoveries.
