Looking out the window from the Pola Museum Annex, a mother and kid were seen walking

I don't know if it was in response to the fact that Shiseido, the leading cosmetics company, has a gallery in Ginza, but Pola, a rival company, also has a gallery in Ginza.

When I think of art museums run by Pola, I think of the Pola Museum of Art in Hakone, which has works by Monet, Renoir, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Picasso, and others, but it is also in Ginza.

I took the elevator and got off at the third floor, glancing sideways at the POLA Ginza store, which was too sparkly for me to approach, and found myself at the POLA Museum Annex. This day's exhibition was not just an exhibition, but a charity auction. It was an interesting exhibition of travel-themed artworks, which visitors could not only look at but also participate in the auction to purchase if they liked.

Everyone has traveled at one time or another, to varying degrees. Perhaps for this reason, the images of travel projected in the works are different for each artist. At best, it is rich in variety, and at worst, it lacks a sense of unity. In this context, what impressed me the most was not the work itself, but the phrase written in the caption of Ryu Itadani's work, "Kotaro Sawaki, who was older than me in the book, has become much younger."
