"Old-Fashioned Arcade" (1965) by Keiji Usami

Keiji Usami's signature works tackle the subject of floods, a topic the artist has been working on for the past 10 years. Since the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami last year, the idea of the flood has taken on new meanings and associations, leading to more varied artistic interpretations.

For this exhibition, seven of Usami's flood-themed pictures will be presented, in addition to some of his other early works; till June 12.

Ooka Makoto Kotoba Museum; (055) 976 9160; 1-9-11, Bunkyo-cho, Mishima, Shizuoka; Mishima Station, JR Tokaido Line, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. ¥500. Closed Wed. www.zkai.co.jp/kotobakan.
