Japanese Girls Photo Exhibition

Japanese girls Kikkawa Motoko’s ‘Japanese Girls’, running until the 6th of February 2002.  Kikkawa-san is a Tokyo-born, Melbourne-based photographer.  She started taking photos of fellow students when studying philosophy at university and her career grew from there.

The photos in the exhibition were taken in Japan, Europe and Melbourne and in the artist’s words represent ‘pretty little things in plastic bags’, a startling interpretation of Japan’s preoccupation with wrapping and plastic.  The unusual handmade yellow foam frames and plastic covering the photos enhance this effect.

Kikkawa-san is currently looking for models for her next project – M/F, Japanese or other.  If you are interested please contact the bar.


See over 1,000 of pictures of Japanese girls including Race Queens, Japanese event girls, show girls in our Japanese Girls Gallery.

Tuesday - Sunday 6pm to 1am. Kitchen until 10pm. Functions welcome!

Ume Nomiya opened in September 2001 to satisfy those looking for a place to enjoy Japanese alcohol and food. It�s a mixture of the old and the new, with heavy wooden furniture and textile hangings mixing with DJs and art exhibitions. The clientele ranges from Fitzroy locals to homesick Japanese and Japanophiles.

The food menu changes every couple of weeks and offers customers a range of snacks and mains you're not likely to find on other Japanese menus around town. The brief to the chef: cheap, tasty and interesting. Go to the kitchen page on the website to see the current menu.

In addition to the food and regular DJs, Ume is well-known for its cocktails. And every Sunday you can buy Sapporo Black Label beer 2 for 1...
