See the Museum of Asian Art on a Corfu holiday

In news that may interest people planning a Corfu holiday, a piece by Toshusai Sharaku from the Edo period has been found at the Museum of Asian Art in Corfu Town, reports

Depicting known actors performing in a kabuki play, international experts have reportedly examined and authenticated the work and claim it will be important for re-evaluating the artist.

The Museum of Asian Art could provide a pleasant afternoon for people staying in Corfu villas - housed in a neo-classical building, the collections derive from Japan, China, India, Nepal and Thailand, among other nations.

Greece Museums Guide highlights the museum's Greek-Buddhistic sculpture collection as an attraction of particular interest.

A Corfu villa in Gouvia could be ideally placed for a day trip to Corfu town to take in the museum and the centre's other attractions.
