Happy New Latvia

Latvia, forming the centre of the three Baltic states, has become a popular travel destination in recent years. It's especially known for its capital Riga’s charming townscape, nicknamed 'the pearl of the Baltic Sea'. At this exhibition focused on Latvian crafts and designs, you can dittle over hand-knitted mitten and baskets made from natural materials and other traditional handcrafts, plus porcelain made between the 1950s and 1980s. 

Film and Latvian lovers alike shouldn't miss the February 24th screening of the popular documentary 'Ruch and Norie (Rucs un Norie)' by Latvian movie director Ināra Kolmane, which details an emotional encounter between the Japanese student Norie Tsurata and Suiti women Ruch (¥2000, reservation required).
