Lucie Rie at National Art Center

When she said she wanted to go to a pottery exhibition I wasn't too enthused to say the least.

The National Art Center is situated in Roppongi. It's an interesting building.Lucie Rie's work is actually pretty good. They played a doco showing how she created her pots which brought to mind the Unchained Melody part in "Ghost" for some reason.

We were thinking to get tickets to Regina Spektor's concert at Billboard Live but the box office was closed.

We tried some more bagels at Junoesque Bagel in Tokyo Midtown. To me it tasted just about the same as Bagel & Bagel, not bad, but not great.It looks like the closest to what we had in New York is Maruichi Bagel. Number one indeed, so far.

We also went to the Ricoh building in Ginza for a small Alex Prager photo exhibition. It was free and also gave me an opportunity to take a Ginza scene from above.While we were in Ginza we picked up some anpan from Kimuraya. Since I haven't been working at the Ginza school for quite a while I really missed them.

After that we went to nearby Yurakucho for some Red Tiger restaurant Chinese food.
