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 best buys for keeping your house dry in summer?

We're going to likely be house sitting for family in Tokyo this summer - at least for a couple of weeks - which means that we're not going to be here in Niigata and able to be emptying our dehumidifiers constantly. Do you have any amazing products (even better if you have Amazon links for me!) that don't need you to be physically present to draw that moisture out of the air? The last thing I want is to come back to a sticky, sweaty, moldy house! Thanks in advance!

Your coffee recommendations for Shibuya/Shinjuku and surrounds!

I first visited Japan in 2012, and found that coffees other than Starbucks, Doutor or Boss were pretty hard to come by. Having lived in Melbourne for the past five years, I have had the privilege of having some of the best coffee at my doorstep which has unfortunately caused me to become quite discerning with my coffee choices haha. I know that coffee culture has changed quite significantly in Tokyo in recent years, and that there has been an explosion of international and Japanese roasteries popping up consistently. I'm interested to know more about your favourite kissaten or coffee shops, or any that you've found interesting!
