The “Exhibition at the Station”
takes place at JR Ueno Station every year

The Traffic Culture Exhibition is held at JR Ueno Station from October 27th to November 1st 2021 and is organized by The Japan Traffic Culture Association. The exhibition is located JR Ueno Station Central Exit, Grand Concourse, Special Exhibition Site. The exhibition includes photographs and haikus submitted from all over Japan that have been judged the very best.
This year’s exhibition will also feature works by the artists of the SAKURYOKAI, a group of representative artists drawing from Western painting to traditional Japanese painting, as well calligraphy etc.
In the public art promotion corner, we presents 49 years of the Association’s public art promotion activities and the “1% for Art” initiative. And also we will focus on Taiwan’s public art. Taiwan legislated “1% for Art” in 1992, which has become a major driving force in the promotion of public art, and it contributes to tourism, beautification of the environment and local development.
And in keeping with our aim to promote public art, we invited XU Ning, a painter, to create an artwork for this event. She won the 38th International TAKIFUJI Art Award in 2017 sponsored by our Association. You can enjoy her artwork made by ceramic relief put on the center of the site.
