From the Family—Works by Furutani Michio

UPDATE: Works Online.

Fall and all the dazzling colors it brings is in full swing here in Kyoto, and we hope this finds all visitors to RYYG mighty genki (fine). In a surprise call to RYYG and honored to have this chance, we’ll be offering works from the estate of the late, great Furutani Michio in Dec. Here is a preview photo of works to be seen. All will come with boxes signed by his wife and this is the first time for these works to be seen, all dating from his last years. More about one of RYYG’s all-time favorite artists can be read by searching at
