Banksy Pieces Displayed in Japan for the First Time
A collection of works from the U.K.-based anonymous artist known as Banksy is now on display in Japan for the first time, in Yokohama. Famous worldwide for thought-provoking art, often in the form of graffiti and street painting, Banksy's pieces are interpreted as a humorous, but critical commentary on modern society.

Those in Japan can enjoy the pieces at Asobuild, a multi-purpose building that is directly accessible from Yokohama Station.
