Event information:
One hundred years in the past in August 1918, there were uprisings demanding lower prices for rice ("Rice Riots") in cities all over Japan including Nagoya. After, a Japanese-style artist from Nagoya named Kiyoka Sakurai, who worked at the Tokugawa Art Museum, was shocked by the incident, and painted large scrolls depicting the Rice Riots occurring in Nagoya. In these vivid scrolls are not only the occurrence of the Rice Riots, but also the changing views of Nagoya in its transformation from a castle town to a modern city as well as the people living their day to day lives.
All of the Rice Riot scrolls are shown in this exhibition, and among them are related materials, photographs from the time, and more to help you understand the scrolls, inviting you back 100 years into the Nagoya of the past.
