Portuguese Art in Japan - Japan

A few days ago, I have contacted the Portuguese Embassy in Tokyo, to request information about Portuguese monuments in Japan. The Portuguese-Japanese relations refer back to the 16th Century with the presence of the Portuguese in Japan.
I was informed that the Embassy has published a book about it, ''Portuguese Art in Japan'' and they have been kind enough to send me a copy by post.
The book showcases the work of 16 Portuguese contemporary artists that have their masterpieces in public areas of Japan (public parks, museums, galleries, subway station, etc).
My aim in the coming months is to visit some of these places.

If anyone would like further information or a copy of the book, please contact the Portuguese Embassy at centrocultural@toquio.org.
