Life in Edo | Russel Wong in Kyoto at Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) explores Japanese art and culture through woodblock prints and photography. The showcase provides a glimpse into both the Edo period and contemporary Kyoto.
The woodblock prints section looks at lifestyles and trends of Edo period Japan (1603 – 1868), including people’s travels, ideas on beauty, pets, food, and entertainment. The other component explores the beauty of nature and architecture of Kyoto today. It also captures the vanishing traditions of the geisha (geiko in Kyoto dialect) community through the lens of Singaporean photographer Russel Wong.
ACM has introduced hourly-timed entries on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays for the exhibition and you are required to book your time slots online prior to your visit. Timed entry will not apply on weekdays.
