While come from another museum on Sunday, November 20, I saw this huge blue whale display outside the National Museum of Nature and Science in Ueno. It was so impressive that I had to stop and take a few photos. I check out this museum properly someday!

The year 2023 will mark the 120th anniversary of acclaimed director Yasujiro Ozu, whose most famous work is Tokyo Story (1953). He is also closely associated with the film studio Shochiku, so it should come as no surprise that a special panel exhibition featuring Ozu's film works (posters, awards, etc.) is currently on display on the first floor of the Togeki Building (which is where Shochiku is headquartered) in Tsukiji. The exhibition opened on November 16 and will run through late December. While out and about on Sunday, November 20, I stopped by to look around. Here's what I saw.

On Sunday, November 20, I went to Toho Cinemas Hibiya and took some photos of the Godzilla statue, as well as some fun extras. Soundtrack albums for Midnight Cowboy (1969) and Lost Highway (1997) were for sale, which wasn't something I was expecting to see. Anyway, enjoy!
