Shot at OHARA MUSEUM of ART in Kurashiki, Okayama.
After the Meiji Restoration, the Japanese was absorbed into the Western culture. Various leading-edge techniques were imported to this country. Along with the technology, the western art was also imported by the affluent population. This museum was built by one of the well-to-do persons. It was the first collection of Western art to be permanently exhibited in this country.
A yellow flower of lotus was blooming in the garden of the museum. Although the collections of this museum were amazing, the sweetness of this flower did not to be outdone.
