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.

Your favorite summer getaway spots?

Any favorite places you all have to get away to during the stinking hot summer months? I would love a long weekend away somewhere (ideally cooler!) We did Hakodate/Aomori one summer and really enjoyed it. Would love to hear your suggestions.

Hot water into cold water

I heard or read somewhere that pouring hot water into cold water was not a good thing to do. (I like my water luke warm sometimes) Something to do with religion or dead association with dead people (and Japan does not like that) Have you heard of this? Any sources I could see so I don’t mess up in a critical moment?

Annoying morning futon slapping noise. What time is OK?

There's a middle-aged guy, living in one of the apartments in the building across the street from me, who hangs out his futon between 7 - 8 am and then bangs the sh@*t out of them with one of those stupid plastic slapping devices. Honestly, I want to take it from him and slap him with it instead. Of course, I'll end up doing nothing of the sort, but I find this futon-slapping at that time so annoying and noisy and am astonished that he continues to do it despite his noise echoing down the whole street and him being the only person on the street to do so (at least at that sort of time). If he was in my building I might stick a note through his door or something, but I'm not sure about the protocol of doing that when the culprit is in a different building. I'm also wondering if the 7 - 8 am slot for futon-slapping is a perfectly acceptable one and actually it's me that needs the attitude adjustment. Thoughts?
