Japanese Electronics Store DEODEO

This is a table top dishwasher. It is something that won't be found in a typical Japanese home as there is no room in the kitchen for this.

A home humidifier

Japanese washing machines are possibly the best made products in the world. They do make dryers but they are not on display as most Japanese homes hang out their clothing to dry.

NTT (Nippon Telephone and Telegraph) DOCOMO is advertised everywhere in Japan.

My Neighbor Totoro

As part of the exhibit, visitors were invited to put together their own Totoro and place it in front of images of the backgrounds from the movie.

The exhibit itself was an in-depth look into the artwork and history of the artist, Kazuo Oga. It had the places he visited and drew inspiration for his artwork in and around the islands of Japan.
