Tokyo Airport Art & Beauty
Tokyo airport contains art and beauty.
Art in Tokyo Air Port
I've noticed that international airports are becoming art galleries. I love it. Having beautiful local art work to enjoy makes traveling so much more enjoyable.
It used to be that airports were more sterile and functional than beautiful. Now, these places are catching on to using the massive space for displaying their country's talent for art.
Take this gigantic mosaic art cube at the airport in Tokyo. Isn't it perfectly wonderful? Refreshing, eye-catching, colorful, fun, surprising. How could anyone just walk by this? I had to search it out from all angles....I loved it!

It's also massive, you can tell that by comparing it to the little people walking by it. Even the international airport in Moline, Illinois, which is only about twenty minutes from our home, is now displaying local artwork....makes waiting so much more enjoyable.
This Japanese airport also has these marvelous real flowers in full bloom to enjoy.
The colors are so vivid and bright....again, how can folks just walk past these? I was entranced, but then, I'm usually the one lagging behind, trying to take in all the sights and sounds.
Hey, maybe that's why I avoid official tours like the plague....I'm sooo slow and pokey and want to see everything!
Don't get me wrong, Tokyo is also filled with beautiful flowers all around the city. Plants grow huge there!

And ourside of little tiny apartments, folks grow things in containers. These people love growing things. It helps me appreciate the acres we have on our farm, which, we too often take for granted.

These cherry blossoms were not actually blooming in the airport, but these life size photos were in full bloom there.
Don't they look real? It made me feel like I was walking through the authentic trees....only the fragrance was missing, shucks, maybe they could figure out a way to get some cherry blossoms smell be wafted around the area.
Anna once took some superb photos of cherry blossoms blooming in a Paris cemetery we were investigating. She blew up the photos huge and has them hanging in her room and now a small one at her work station at Ashford University in Clinton, Iowa.
