Exhibition Japan - Tales of Objects and Images

Japan – tales of objects and images

Meet the multifaceted Japan.

The exhibition shows over 400 objects from the urban communities of Japan, e.g. the Samurai, merchants and craftsmen. Most of the objects date from the Edo period (1615 - 1868) and include works of art through which we are given a glimpse of the entertainment, religious and tea ceremony performances in Japan and its contacts with the outside world.
