Have fun walking around Ueno! Ueno Museum Week is scheduled to be held!

From Friday, May 10th to Sunday, May 26th, enjoy a cultural walking tour with a stamp rally around popular spots and gourmet spots in the Ueno area!

In the Ueno area, in commemoration of International Museum Day on May 18th, 12 facilities around Ueno Park, including museums, art galleries, and the zoo, will cooperate with Ueno Norenkai member stores to hold Ueno Museum Week. This year, a digital stamp rally will also be held for the first time. On International Museum Day on May 18th, multiple museums will be free to enter. Make the most of the event by using the annual "Town Fun" coupons.

The biggest attraction this year is the first-ever digital stamp rally! From cultural facilities in Ueno Park to various spots in Ueno Shopping Street, a total of 13 stamp points will appear in the Ueno area! In addition to cultural facilities in the park, Matsuzakaya Ueno Store Main Building 7F Art Gallery, ABAB Ueno Store 6F "Uenoshita Studio", Ueno Station art space CREATIVE HUB UENO "es" and other spots where you can feel art in the city are also points of interest. Among them, BUZZCHIKA (Shino Buzz Brewery Hitsuji Ice basement) is an art hotspot in the city where young artists' exhibitions and plays are actively held. Please enjoy the atmosphere of Ueno, the city of art, along with the stamp rally. The stamp rally rewards include coupons that can be used at Ueno stores at one stamp (you can get up to 13 per stamp!), creator collaboration digital art works at three stamps, and prizes from participating cultural facilities at seven stamps.

Another highlight is the "free admission" on May 18th, "International Museum Day." On that day, visitors can visit three museums for free: the Tokyo National Museum, the National Museum of Nature and Science, and the National Museum of Western Art. In addition, this year the Tokyo University of the Arts Museum will be giving away original museum goods to the first 50 visitors.

*The free admission day for the Taito Ward Former Tokyo Music School Concert Hall is Wednesday, May 15th. Please be careful not to make a mistake.

The annual coupon service can be used at 11 Ueno Noren-kai stores. During the period, please present the admission ticket stub of one of the 12 cultural facilities participating in Ueno Museum Week 2024. We will be offering generous free services such as complimentary soft drinks, draft beer, desserts, and 10% off purchases. Invite your friends and family to enjoy the whole of Ueno's "forest" and "town."

I'm from Fukuyama, Hiroshima Prefecture. I create a retro-future worldview by fusing mecha and cuteness. It's a story about rusty robots who continue to live in a decaying world, imitating humans. I've been an artist for 10 years now. I've exhibited at various events, and I've also had the honor of exhibiting my work at the Art Education Association.

■What is International Museum Day? ■

"International Museum Day" is a museum commemoration day established by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) in 1977. Commemorative events are held at museums around the world on and around May 18th with the aim of familiarizing many people with museums and raising awareness of the role of museums. Ueno, which is rare even on an international level in terms of the large number of cultural facilities such as museums and art galleries gathered there, holds various commemorative events every year around "International Museum Day" as "Ueno Museum Week", held by cultural facilities and the Ueno Noren Association.

■Ueno Norenkai■

Ueno, the cloud of flowers, is the representative entertainment district of this part of Edo. It is the source of art and culture in the Meiji period. The Ueno Noren Association is a federation of about 100 famous stores in Ueno. Since its founding in 1959 (Showa 34), it has been publishing the town magazine "Ueno" every month with the aim of rediscovering the cultural traditions of this area. This is the 776th issue (as of May 2024).
