The Hoki Museum is home to paintings that are strikingly similar to reality. Some 500 works by modern Japanese artists are exhibited in this museum located in Chiba Prefecture, just a 1-hour train ride from Tokyo. This episode focuses on the works of 5 artists, whose art spans various subjects including a bird nest, the female form and country landscapes. But rather than pursue just photorealism, each artist of the museum articulates their own unique perspectives through their works.
