Located in the center of Kyoto city, discover a pure Japanese-style building with an elegant appearance and a beautiful garden that will make you forget the hustle and bustle of the city.
Spend a unforgettable moment at the Kubo Family Residence (former Imao Keinen Residence), a tangible cultural property that has been preserved for over 100 years.
Imao Keitoshi was a Japanese-style painter of the Shijo school who was active from the Meiji era to the Taisho era in Japan. While working on rough sketches for textiles, he excelled at colorful bird-and-flower paintings, and his realistic style became famous over Japan.
At the 18th year of the Meiji Era (1885), he exhibited « One Hundred Varieties of Remaining Things » and was awarded the first gold medal. His most emblematic work is Nanzenji temple’s « Unryu-zu »painting.
special event at rokujuan
Roland Hagenberg is an artist, writer and photographer who grew up in Vienna. He lived and worked in Berlin, New York and Tokyo. Three years ago, he established his studio in Kyoto, an ancient imperial city like Vienna with a long history of culture and tradition. It was here where Roland became interested in the works of Utamaro, Hakuin and Hiroshige-drawn to their often humorous technique of combining calligraphy, drawings and poetry that have not lost their appeal to modern viewers hundreds of years later.
The exhibition « KOWAKU Fascination/Seduction » is an ironic homage to these Japanese masters – suitably taking place at Rokujuan, the former studio of artist Keinen Imao (1845-1924).
