Philip, Dorothy and John Arthur took a ferry to Tokushima Prefecture on Shikoku Island in Japan.

At the Tokushima Museum of Modern Art Philip and John Arthur gave prepared lectures that were simultaneously translated by the same translator who showed up each time they gave a presentation. John’s presentation was a survey of the New Realist Painting Movement that the show was about, and Philip talked about the history of Figurative Art through the ages as related to his own work.

After the lecture, Philip went to the Tokushima Prefectural Museum in the other wing of the same building, where he saw their exhibition of prehistoric skeletons and unique collection of Joruri puppet theater Masks. Later that night they celebrated with a lavish Japanese meal.

The next day they traveled to Tokyo, where John and Philip held a symposium with a number of curators and art educators from various institutions in the Tokyo area. The day after that they went to Nikko, in the Tochigi Prefecture, where they visited the famous city rivers and the Nikkō Tōshō-gū shrine, one of the National Treasures of Japan and part of the Shrines and Temples of Nikkō UNESCO World Heritage Site. The original Three Wise Monkeys, a pictorial maxim, embodying the proverbial principal “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”, were popularized by a 17th-century carving over a door of this famous shrine.

They finished their journey by walking around the Japanese Red Wood Forest, climbing the hundreds of stone steps up to the grave of Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa shogunate, passing by the five tiered pagoda and revisited the Shinkyo Bridge the next morning, before they went back to Tokyo for the flight home.
