What you'll do

The tour explores the Osaka's new art town: Kitakagaya area. We will meet at Osaka metro "Kitakagaya" station, then will visit several art spots (artist studios, graffitis, museum-scale art storage, some local art projects, my Art hub where we hold various art events) Please see the link below, you can know more about the town we tour: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfseRMX0fxE&feature=youtu.be Some of the places are normally not able to be entered for ordinal tourists. Especially the museum-scale art storage is only open for a designated period of the year (only a week per year); we will visit the space very exceptionally. The storage stores important art works by important contemporary artists in Japan. Not only that we can find world famous grafitti artists' works on streets. It's going to be 1 hour-walking art tour and at the end, we will visit our art hub where we have even more information about local artists ( you'll have 1 free drink and wifi) to have more frank time to chat and share information and time. I think this tour is a kind of dedicated for Art lovers. But actually anyone is welcome if you are curious about a different aspect of Osaka.

Kenji

Hi, I'm Kenji. I am co-founder of the Osaka Art hub established in early 2019. As an artist, I've lived, stayed various places and exhibited in galleries in countries such as in London, Berlin, Madrid, Bangkok and so on. I call myself a mid-careered foreigner. (my dream is to be a professional foreigner) Based on my experience, networks and career in Osaka, my tour would be nice for someone who wants to know and learn Osaka's art scene. The place where we will tour is in "Kitakagaya" area. It has recently become known for its art, but still not known for tourists. Young artists and other creators were attracted to the area to live and work in the town’s many empty buildings and houses. I would like to show you around in this "kind of hidden Art district" in Osaka by visiting various art spots to show some aspects of art scene here.

Where you'll be

Note: I just started this tour as my first trial and would like to offer a special price for a while. We will meet at the Osaka metro Kitakagaya station. Then, we will walk around the Osaka's hidden art area to visit some art spots including local art projects and a huge storage-gallery. At the end we will visit an art center where there is more information about local artists and art scene. You'll probably meet other local artists there.
