Bijutsu-kan: a museum space in Epcot's Japan pavilion

Are you aware of the museum spaces present in some of the World Showcase Pavilions? If not, make a point to check them out next time you visit. They often go overlooked by visitors, but they truly are worth seeking out. They house some of the more interesting finds in Epcot.

Tucked away in the Japan pavilion is Bijutsu-kan, a Japanese art gallery.

For the last few years, the gallery has been showing an exhibit on "Spirited Beasts", an exploration of the mythical creatures found in anime:

I was excited to find out that a new exhibit was recently installed, celebrating what's being referred to as Japan's "culture of cute". I look forward to visiting this exhibit in a few weeks, so stay tuned for an update.
