One of the leading poets of contemporary Japan, Shuntaro Tanikawa, gets the limelight for this exhibition at Hatsudai's Opera City. Tanikawa's work covers a broad palette of genres, from composing the lyrics for the anime-classic Astro Boy theme song, the Japanese translation of The Peanuts, and collaborative works with leading Japanese artists, such as movie director Kon Ichikawa and composer Toru Takemitsu. Approaching his 86th birthday, Tanikawa still captivates his readers with his fresh and dynamic words.
Look forward to exclusive poems especially written for this occasion, get to know his favourite music pieces and look through private family-photographs of the past. Don't miss the collaboration works with interface designer Yugo Nakamura, and musician Keigo Oyamada (aka Cornelius).
