J. Parker Valentine « NODE » – Exhibition at Otsuka

Otsuka neighborhood, near Ikebukuro and linked with the JR Yamanote Line via Otsuka Station, is probably famous for its rich gastronomy, the many massage places that there is around, and the increasing number of young foreigners living there, who like to chill at Speak Easy, an international bar where foreigners and Japanese people converge and socialize.

But believe or not, between all those massage adverts there is also room for art in Otsuka. Yes, I know, even if you have been living here for a while you probably didn’t know, but just 10 minutes walking from the station there is a small art gallery called Misako & Rosen. It’s not a big place, neither something extremely spectacular, but it’s a good place to go for those who like to enjoy some good local & international art for free.

J. Parker Valentine
