Coming soon: Memories of Shōwa

Even if we do not know when we will be able to open up to the public, we have been working hard on our next exhibition: Memories of Shōwa: Impressions of Working Life by Wada Sanzō. This exhibition consists of the impressive series ‘Japanese vocations of the Shōwa era in pictures’ by Wada Sanzō (1883-1967) and will feature all three volumes. These prints offer nostalgic and modern images of everyday life in Japan during the late 1930s through to the early 1950s. Together with Wada’s written observations, this exhibition provides a deeply personal account of the continuously changing professions during this complex era of modern Japanese history.

Keep an eye on our website and socials for any updates regarding our future opening times. Unfortunately we are unable to give any dates at this moment, but we hope to welcome you to Nihon no hanga very soon!

UPDATE

We know will have to implement a reservation and ticketing system through Eventbrite to ensure a safe visit for you and our staff. Please see our Tickets page for more detailed information on what to expect when we are able to open our doors again.

100 days of Kishio

Koizumi Kishio (1893-1945)
1. Eitai Bridge and Kiyosu Bridge, from the series One hundred pictures of Great Tokyo in the Shōwa era
1928, October (Shōwa 3, 10th month)
“City Hall was very proud of the rapid construction of bridges that form the base of the recovery. (Shōwa 3, 9th month)”.

As we are facing difficult times, we want to share something from our museum with you, every day. For the next 100 days we will post a print on our Facebook and Instagram from Koizumi Kishio’s series ‘One hundred pictures of Great Tokyo in the Shōwa era. From the first print in October 1928 to the hundredth design of December 1937, Kishio worked diligently on what he called his ‘life’s work’. The complete set can be found in our collection.

Note

Descriptions of all one hundred prints have been limited to the original commentaries by Koizumi Kishio. Every comment includes a date for the print, but these are sometimes different from the one on the actual print. Underneath the title the date is included as shown on the design, and if it differs from the commentary date both Japanese dates are given.
