    Comment from Shinichiro Miki <br>Before the coronavirus, I refreshed my mind and body by going overseas every year and visiting museums and world heritage sites in those countries. Therefore, I was very happy to hear about the audio guide. Especially since I had visited Center Pompidou about 20 years ago. I think the moment when you see a painting or work and your heart moves is a very precious experience, so I would like to accompany you while explaining the background and the artist's thoughts so as not to interfere with that moment. I think so.
