Otto Nebel and his contemporaries - Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee @ Bunkamura Museum of Art2. Otto Nebel and his contemporaries – Chagall, Kandinsky, Klee @ Bunkamura Museum of Art – German painter Otto Nebel (1892–1973), best known for his abstract paintings wan an unappreciated artist while living. However, we are lucky in Tokyo to be able to view the first retrospect of his work in Japan. Bebel was inspired by his great friends Kandinsky, Klee and others of the Bauhaus movement. The exhibit is interesting for kids because it shows how one artist can paint using many styles and subject matter. A great exhibit to discuss with kids how there is no “right” way to make art, just want is in your own heart. Check out our other recommended attractions and restaurants around Bunkamura (Shibuya and Harajuku/JingueMae )

3. Love is Wonderful, Snoopy Museum Tokyo (Roppongi) –  October 7th, 2017 (Sat) – April 8th, 2018(Sun)  – If you are a die-hard Snoopy fan, this is a great history museum that chronicles both Charles M. Schulz life and work.  Since the museum is very history based and entails a lot of reading I do not recommend for younger children. I think teens and above will enjoy spending 1-2 hours reading the comics and learning the progress of Mr. Schulz’s life.

Love is Wonderful exhibit – In the comic strip Peanuts, there are various ‘love episodes’ that makes one’s heart excited. Charlie Brown lets out a sigh with the Little Red Haired Girl in front of him, and the crabby Lucy thinks of Shroeder wholeheartedly. Even Snoopy has a bitter experience where his brother Spike runs off with Snoopy’s bride-to-be just before their wedding. You will be able to enjoy a dramatic atmosphere in the upcoming exhibition, where there will be about 80 original comic strips and original animation introducing the many ‘love episodes’ in Peanuts.
