Greetings, dear family,
We believe that you already know from many media sources that
Bae Yong Joon has stayed at Iwate Urushi Art Museum (Morioka City, Iwate Prefecture)
and studied under Mr. Jun Yong Bok, traditional lacquer artist, during his Japan visit last month.
After it has been reported in media,
many family members from all over the country have visited the museum.
Mr. Jun is very happy that so many people have shown interest in lacquer culture.
However, Iwate Urushi Art Museum is now closed under construction
to re-open as a new theme-park museum to promote lacquer culture to the world.
You will not be able to see inside the museum, even if you visit the museum now.
The museum is scheduled to open in May.
Mr. Jun is focusing his work in order to introduce lacquer to many people at earliest possible date.
We ask you for your understanding and visit again after the museum is reopened.
