A few months ago, the Tin Toy Exhibition at Epcot’s Japan pavilion gallery closed after several years without much notice to make way for a new exhibition. Expected to have opened in mid-October, reported delays in having the pieces shipped to Walt Disney World from Japan kept the gallery closed until very recently.

The Bijutsu-kan gallery now hosts a touring exhibition titled Timeless Beauty: World Heritage Sites of Japan. Featuring photographs by Kazuyoshi Miyoshi, the images pay homage to places designated as World Heritage Sites, locations around the world adopted by a 1971 United Nations international treaty to identify places that ‘belong to all people’ around the globe.

A Stitch Kingdom reader has provided us with photos of the space and exhibition and we are pleased to give you this first look and hope you are able to visit the exhibition yourself the next time you visit Epcot.

As a sidebar, the Kidcot station in the Japan pavilion appears to have remained outside of the gallery.

  1. I find it highly culturally unsensitive that you would post photographs of this exhibit considering that it has several signs throughout thw gallery stating No Photographs and No Videotaping that were asked to be placed there by the Japanese exhibitors.

  2. Thank you for your concern about the site being 'unsensitive,' however
    I have to believe that trying to make an international incident over it
    is a bit of a stretch. No one affiliated with the site took the photos,
    no one from the site instructed anyone to take photos, they were simply
    submitted to us in an effort to bring about attention to the exhibit.
    Certainly if a cease and desist letter from the appropriate channels
    were to find their way to us, we would honor the request.

    We encourage all guests to follow the rules but I'm afraid we do not
    have the obligation to enforce them. If we hadn't posted the few images
    portrayed in this article, undoubtedly someone else would have and —
    for all we know — also has.
