An exhibition from the Cernuschi Museum in the Montparnasse train station!

The splendid Cernuschi Museum is closed for the moment, but you can still get a taste of their exhibition Voyage sur la route du Kisokaidō. De Hiroshige à Kuniyoshi near our hotels in the Montparnasse train station, where large illuminated panels present a selection of nearly 150 Japanese engravings never seen before!

Due to be the first temporary exhibition after the museum’s nine-month renovation, Voyage sur la route du Kisokaidō. De Hiroshige à Kuniyoshi was never actually allowed to open (although it may do so soon).

It contains nearly 150 exceptional Japanese engravings, many of which are being shown to the public for the very first time…

The museum’s loss is the Left Bank’s gain – if you go to platform 24 of Gare Montparnasse you’ll be able to see a presentation of some of the works from the exhibition, plus info about the subject (one of the most spectacular road in Japan: the Kisokaidō, one of the five routes of the Edo period).
