Exhibitions 展示など

1. "Prince Tokugawa's Meiji - the end of the Tokugawa Shogunate", exhibition @ Tojo Museum プリンス・トクガワ 徳川昭武が歩んだ幕末・明治、展示 @ 戸定歴史館

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 special exhibition of his posessions and photographs. This collection is a window back in time to a period of dramatic change in Japan.

Dates: Saturday 18th March - Sunday 25th of June, 2017 (open daily, excl. Mondays)
Hours: 9:30 - 17:00 (last entry at 16:30)
Venue: Tojo Museum, Matsudo 714-1 (ten min. walk from Matsudo Station East Exit)
Fee: General 240 yen, High school/University students 150 yen (includes entry to Tojo-tei House)
