The world famous and popular contemporary artist, Yayoi Kusama’s special exhibition “Eternity of Eternal Eternity” is now held in the Matsumoto Museum of Art.

Kusama was born in Matsumoto and lived until she moved to NY when she was 28 years old.

The entire museum is now occupied by Kusama world.

A big white-dotted red dog and a huge Kusama Yoyoi doll greet you.

In the quad of the museum, you can watch her famous work, yellow pumpkin.

These works can be seen even without a ticket of the exhibition.

Not only in the Matsumoto Museum of Art, but also the Parco department store and Hotel Buena Vista in downtown Matsumoto is exhibiting Kusama’s works (you can take snapshots with these works).
