PROJECT 1867: Celebrating 150 years of the Paris Expo PART 2: 'Photography and the Expo' 1867年パリ万博150周年記念展－第2期 写真と万博
The House of Tokugawa ruled Japan over a period of 264 years until 1867 (the Edo Period). The “shogun” was at the top of this ruling structure. The younger brother of the last shogun was Akitake Tokugawa. He was expected to be the successor to his older brother, and was sent to the 1867 Paris Exposition as a representative of the shogun where he carried out court diplomacy with the kings and emperors of other countries. However, a change in government occurred while he was in Paris, and by the time he returned to Japan, the era of the House of Tokugawa was already over.
In celebration of 150 years since Prince Tokugawa's participation in the Paris Exposition, Tojo Museum has organised a 3-part exhibition. The second part will be on display from July through September, and presents a photographic record of the Paris Expo.
