The exterior of the concrete studio section of the building is painted black, as seen in this photo taken at the Asakura Museum of Sculpture in Tokyo's Taito Ward on Jan. 27, 2022. Fumio Asakura (1883-1964), the sculpture who designed and used the building, made sure not to bother his neighbors with reflections of the sun off his building. (Mainichi/Akihiro Ogomori)
