Prince Kako at the Acropolis Museum

This morning, Minister of Culture Lina Mendoni, together with the Director General of the Acropolis Museum, Nikos Stampolidis, toured Princess Kakoya of Japan at the Acropolis Museum.

The prince was particularly interested in the sculptural decoration of the Parthenon and wanted to learn in detail the method of sculpting the statues. His interest was attracted by the colors preserved on the surfaces of the daughters of the Acropolis, as well as the differences in the hairstyles and clothing of the Caryatids.

At 12 noon, Prince Kako was welcomed by Minister of Culture Lina Mendoni, Minister of Tourism Olga Kefalogianni and Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Alexandra Papadopoulos in connection with the celebration of the Greece-Japan Year of Culture and Tourism at the National Gallery

The declaration of 2024 as the Greece-Japan Year of Culture and Tourism was agreed by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis and his Japanese counterpart Fumio Kishida during the official visit of the Greek Prime Minister to Japan in January 2023.
