Japanese Exhibition

Kyoto - Tokyo From Samurai to Mangas

The exhibition runs through until 12th September.


This exhibition will be an invitation to travel through space and time to the heart of a Japan that has left the imprint of its history on three emblematic places: Kyoto, Tokyo and between the two the historic Tokaido, the road linking old and new capitals.
Through Kyoto the exhibition will spotlight the wealth of history and beating heart of Japan's classical civilisation while in Tokyo the focus is on modern times, contemporary creativity and the lure of the future.
The exhibition will emphasise the links between the traditional culture that has its roots in 8th-century Kyoto and the artistic forms of expression found in modern-day Japan. It will enthral both those fond of traditional Japanese culture and the generation that has grown up with the fictional worlds of mangas, animated films and hi-tech phenomena, the descendants of that ancient culture.
