Thank you to Jeff’s friend who was nice enough to give us complimentary tickets to the Bridgestone Museum of Art at Tokyo station.

We’ll have to plan another day off this month -yay!
We decided to take a little time off to relax and stay away from our computers. Naturally, our chosen day off was chilly and rainy, so outdoor delights were not too appealling. Instead we decided to go to Tokyo’s National Museum of Western Art.
Before entering the museum, you can enjoy some of Auguste Rodin’s famous pieces like The Thinker and my favorite:
We enjoyed a quiet afternoon looking at painting and enjoying the rare quiet inside the museum.
Claude Monet’s Water Lilies
and another favorite:
Paul Signac’s The Port of Saint-Tropez
It’s quite a large striking piece with a very lovely technique of pointillism. I love it because it has beautiful colour mixtures like Monet but with the added texture and precision that is Signac.
