  • I just loved learning about the “Rodin of Japan” Fumio Asakura! What a wonderful artist! We had a pleasant time visiting the museum! It’s a beautiful and peaceful sanctuary full of life and grace built by the great artist! Deeply grateful for visiting it :-D
  • Asakura demonstrated his mastery of the 3D form by tackling what must be the hardest subject, that of the domestic cat. No other sculptor in the history of humanity has shown such skill, with most not even attempting to climb this highest peak of the sculptural arts. Not only did Asakura make it to the top, he did it in brass, and with the ringing endorsement of his chosen subjects. Totally unmissable.
