Wall Painting And Man

Man stopping under big wall painting by Taro Okamoto

A man wearing a coat stopped under the big wall painting

Shot in the city of Shibuya, Tokyo.

A big painting is hung on the wall in the passage which connects between the buildings. It is pretty large and its size is 550cm × 3000cm. So it comes within sight of me no matter how I feel when I walk through the passage. This painting was made by Taro Okamoto, one of the famous painters in Japan. Its title is 'Mythos of tomorrow' and the motif is the hydrogen bomb test, which some Japanese fishermen were bombed, unfortunately. It is said this work is one of the masterpieces made by Okamoto.

However, most of the people walking the passage don't stop. They dash past the painting. The opposite wall is covered with glass. And the famous diagonal crossing in Shibuya is seen through the window. So some people stopped against the glassed wall and watch the crossing. I think it is also worth watching this painting. Yet most of the people seem to think otherwise.
