145 days: Yuki Nakamura

Today I visited the Kyoto National Museum, seeking refuge from the rain and eager to explore traditional Japanese art. The museum's vast collection was captivating, showcasing everything from ancient pottery to intricate samurai armor. While admiring a beautiful scroll painting, I met Yuki Nakamura, an art history student from Tokyo.

Yuki was taking notes for her thesis and noticed my sketches. She approached me and we quickly struck up a conversation about our mutual love of art. Yuki shared fascinating insights into the history behind some of the pieces, enriching my understanding of Japanese culture. She explained how each artifact told a story, connecting the past to the present.

We spent hours exploring the exhibits together, discussing the symbolism in the artwork and our experiences as artists. Yuki's passion for art history was contagious, and her knowledge added depth to my visit. She mentioned her dream of becoming a curator, hoping to inspire others with the beauty and history of Japanese art.

As the day drew to a close, we exchanged contact information and promised to stay in touch and share our artistic journeys. My visit to the Kyoto National Museum was not only an educational experience, but also a heartwarming encounter with a kindred spirit. I left the museum feeling inspired and grateful for the new friendship I had made.
