1. Exhibition: "Jomon Shell Mound - The Kai-no-hana Ruins" 館蔵資料展 「縄文貝塚 貝の花遺跡展」
The Kai-no-hana Ruins (Kai-no-hana-iseki) was a settlement that spanned the middle and tail years of the Jomon period, but only recently in 1964/65 was it discovered and excavated. The discoveries of this excavation were compiled into a report made in 1973.
In addition to appreciating a wide variety of unearthed artifacts, this art exhibit will allow you to learn about the true nature of Kai-no-hana area in light of all the research done since the 1973 report.
The true reason Akitate Tokugawa was sent to the 1867 Paris World Fair was to gather support for the revival of the Shogunate back in Japan, but unexpected trouble within France, a close ally of Japan, caused Akitate to lose much of his financial support, and with it his chances of attaining the revival he dreamed of.
Exhibit Period: Saturday October 5th, 2019 - Sunday November 24th, 2019
Time: 9:30 - 17:00 (The museum opens until 16:30)
Location: Matsudo Municipal Museum, Project Exhibition Room
Admission Fee: Free
2. 企画展「1867年万博使節団の明治～サムライたちの選択」 Special Exhibition - [The 1867 World Fair Delegation: The Samurais’ Choice]
During the Meiji Restoration, the executive power of the Japanese government moved from the hands of the Edo Shogunate to the possession of a new Meiji government. In 1867, Tokugawa Akitate traveled to Europe with a special delegation from the Japanese government, but how did they cope with representing a new Japanese government, without the backing of the Shogunate, in the Meiji period?
The exhibit will showcase priceless historical artifacts to help you learn about the personal lives of these delegation members, from Tokugawa Akitate’s pupil, Nobutsura Yamataka, to right-hand man, Eiichi Shibusawa, among others, and unravel the Meiji period through a new lens.
Exhibit Period： Saturday October 12th - Sunday December 22nd, 2019
Time: 9:30 - 17:00 (The museum opens until 16:30)
Location：Tojo Museum of History
