Tin Toys Stories

In the Japan Pavilion at Epcot, there is the Bijutsu-kan (museum) Gallery. It is home to a rotating collection of art and collectibles that focus on Japanese culture.

The most recent exhibit is the Kitahara Collection of Tin-Toys.

If you walk to the back of the pavilion and enter the main building, the gallery is on the left before you reach the Mitsukoshi Department Store. The Gallery is a beautiful, sedate spot to wander for a few moments without the crowds at your back. There are a few benches and the ambient lighting is perfect for a momentary respite.

Here are a few pictures of the display. Don't forget to spend some time in the Gallery the next time you find yourself in Japan.

Special thanks to Jeff Pepper of 2719 Hyperion for pointing out this great exhibit.

Addendum: Greg, from the Disney Obsession blog, has posted more information about the collection and some great pictures as well. Stop by his blog and leave him some Disney Geek love!
