Biwako Biennale 2020

In Japanese, there’s the expression geijutsu no aki (芸術の秋), or “autumn is for the arts” (literally, “autumn of the arts”).

The Biwako Biennale is an international art exhibition that began in 2001, in a bid to preserve traditional Japanese merchant houses and buildings.

This year the Biwako Biennale will begin Saturday, October 10 and conclude Monday, November 23.

It is a rare art event that highlights the beauty of old Japanese houses, where contemporary art pieces accent spaces that people occupied in the olden days.

You will get to enjoy the fusion of Japanese-style architecture with contemporary art.
