SCEE - Japanese House
As you enter the complex, walkways wind around a central courtyard to the buildings, which have been restored with gleaming wood floors, fresh tatami and a mix of modern and Art Deco furniture. One comfortable space provides literature in Taiwanese and Hakka, which can be perused in air-conditioned comfort. Some rooms offer small showcases of older elements of the buildings or exhibits relating to Taiwanese literature. An interactive exhibit invites you to turn to a random page in a book, choose a sentence that resonates with you and share it. Another operates as a Japanese teahouse, where Japanese Matcha and delicate cakes can be found. Outside, long wooden benches and grassy areas are ringed with tropical plants and original banyan trees, where one can relax in the shade on a warm day.
SCEE - Japanese House
The original thatch-roof restaurant was expanded and renovated in the 1920s, with bridges connecting it to the embankment, a third-floor banquet hall and proper roof tiles. This top floor was said to offer some of the finest views of the river. The family also expanded the restaurant with annexes and courtyards, allowing for gardens, outdoor banqueting and guesthouses. In the post-war era, Kishu An housed civil servants, much like the Qidong Street dormitories. Surprisingly, this is how the famed restaurant gained a connection to Taiwanese literature: novelist Wang Wen-hsing (王文興) once resided here, and many scenes in his poignant novel Family Catastrophe (家變) are set in the building.

As part of the Tokyo National Museum is The Gallery of Horyuiji Treasures, remaining tucked in the corners of Ueno Park. Walk past the Kuromon, a historic black gate, and you will find sleek architecture surrounded by a pond of water. Opened in 1964, the building houses over 300 artifacts from Horyuji Temple in Nara. The Digital Gallery, which opened this January, introduces replicas and opportunities to interact with artworks that date back to the seventh century.
Making his menswear debut for Givenchy, the house women's designer Ricardo Tisci too went for shocking pink, throwing out a suit with socks, shirt and shoes in pink in a gothic-cum-romantic collection mingling masculine and feminine -- lace shirts over tattooed skin, kinky leather shorts worn with cropped leggings.
At the house of Lanvin, designer Lucas Ossendrijver won a standing ovation from hundreds of fashionistas in Paris' ethnological museum for light-looking, almost insubstantial suits that seemed crumpled all over. 041b061a72
