Any place to exhibit art work?

So I'm an artist from America currently living in Japan. When I lived there I would often exhibit art in local cafe's or community art shows. I'm wondering if anyone knows of any opportunities like this here in Japan? Preferably in the Tohoku region since I live near Aomori.

    This cafe in Aomori looks like it might do something like that. If not, if it's anywhere near you, it might a place where you can makes some inquiries .. http://www.ai-sign.com/aiplus@/aiplustop.html I guess your local city office could also be a place to ask. I know that the city office where I live has a gallery space where they showcase different (presumably local) artists / works. I seem to remember someone on here blogging about an arts & crafts bazaar where they were able to exhibit / show some of their work, although I think that was in the Nagoya area, but it shows that these opportunities do exist in Japan.

    I second the idea of contacting your local city or town office. Our local town office also displays art work and they usually have information of upcoming art exhibitions. I would also suggest getting networking with other artists through the likes of Facebook. I know there is a group "artists in Japan" on Facebook. You might find somewhere in your area through there who might have some suggestions for you. Good luck!

    I had a friend who exhibited her art in local community centre hall. You could check for something like that in your area.

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.

Cheap galleries in Kanto for an exhibition?

Anyone in the art community know of somewhere to exhibit art for cheap (or free)? I'm looking to host a short-term photo show. I'm looking for a very small space (even just a wall is fine) for around 10,000 a day (or less, obviously). Thanks!
