At Hotel Florida Spa we are aware many of you quite like art, so because of this we frequently use this blog to recommend you some of the many great exhibitions we have the fortune to have available in Costa del Sol.
Today is one of these occasions as since the 30th of November and until the 27th of February CAC Mijas is housing a very interesting exhibition called “Japan: Culture and Tradition”.
This exhibition is on display in Exhibition Room number 2 of CAC Mijas and its purpose is to celebrate the 150th anniversary of diplomatic relationships between Spain and Japan.
In CAC Mijas now, you can see many beautiful engravings in rice paper from the 19th Century by some of Japan’s most famous artists.
These works show Japanese everyday life scenes and several characters like emperors, samurais and geishas.
Apart from the engravings there is also a crystal urn with a “kabuto”, which is a type of helmet used by ancient Japanese warrior, as well as a “katana”.
As we have said in previous blogs when we have recommended CAC Mijas, this museum is in the centre of Mijas Pueblo, in calle Malaga, and it is open Monday to Saturday from 10 P.M to 6 P.M.
CAC Mijas is a very popular museum in Costa del Sol. Its regular entry price to access all facilities of the museum is 3 euros, and the price for groups and over 65s is only 2 euros.
If you are planning to visit Mijas soon we recommend you visit this interesting exhibition about the Empire of the Rising Sun!
